Clip to ScrapBook #1

Our Art teacher resigned and they aren't replacing her until next school year which means I have my class for Art. I am not artistic but would like to do some type of Art projects with my 6th graders. We have 40 minute periods. Right now in literature we are reading about the Great Depression and in Science we are learning about Ecosystems. If you can think of any projects that could incorporate these themes that would be wonderful. If not, if you have any simple ideas that a 6th grader would enjoy that I could do with them that would be great too! If the project takes more than a week that is also ok. We can store things in the Art room and I do have some space in my room, depending on the project. I appreciate any help you can give me. I want my students to still have some type of Art even if it is easier than they might normally have done.

They could do a poetry scrapbook. Another idea is to create a collage. They could create a photo story about aa topic you are studying.

Look into WPA commissioned photography. Either collages or have the students use a camera/digital camera to shoot their own work.

Diego Rivera murals. I know he's controversial, but I love his work. You can have the kids make their own fresco painting. The second link shows you how.

I often get art ideas from this website

www.thatartistwoman.blogspot.co m

(I think that is the correct website. If it doesn't work google "that artist woman" and her site will come up)

Something I did many years ago with 5th graders for a bulletin board:

We learned a bit about the artist Van Gogh. Then I put the words "Look at my "Van Gogh" on a bulletin board. They had a cut out of a van and had to create art keeping Van Gogh style in mind. Got some awesome creations!!

Great Depression Art

Clip to ScrapBook #10

During the great depression men would go from camp to camp riding the rails looking for work. These tramps would often make art to raise money using whatever materials they could scrounge. Tramp art has become valuable folk art. Much of it was made with popsicle sticks or wooden match sticks. A quick google search should give you some great ideas for an easy class project which would tie in well. Also; this ties in with environmental "found" item art which is what the hobos were doing out of necessity and desperation and not so much to be environmentally green. Hope this helps!
