Mosaic of thought.
I’ve loved getting to know each and everyone of you! Your stories and images have made our first week together so special. It was wonderful watching our wall of Post-It’s grow over the week and seeing so many of you admiring your work, and the work of others.
Big Idea; expression, visual communication, community, and collaboration
Post-It Installation: This week in art we explored visual communication and how it pertains to our lives. Through self expression and collaboration students created post-it notes that explored something about them. Students were asked questions like;
What is the most interesting thing about you? What was the best part of your summer? How will you be a bucket filler?
When students had an idea they could communicate it through the use of a post-it. I really loved getting to know my students through this lesson. Inspiration for the project came from School Art’s Magazine and Giant Robot’s Post-It Show in Los Angeles.
This week in art we will start our first lesson. Friday I will begin choosing an artist of the week from each class.
