1st Grade - Treansforming Monsters - Drawn textures and interactive art
We read the book If You're a Monster and you Know it. by Rebecca Emberley. They students learned some techniques to create drawn texture, fur, hair, warts, bumps, spikes, and we also worked on the idea of interactive art. Where the viewer is allowed to and encouraged to interact with the artist's work. The children had a great time "scarring" each other (and their teachers) with their monsters.
