I like creating art projects for my students that incorporate art history, personal exploration, and original creativity. My Picasso's Blue Period Project gets students to consider current emotional situations that might evoke a "blue" mood. My Op Art Project was created to encourage a non-threatening assignment that every student could do successfully. Instructions are easy to follow and the slide-by-slide examples clearly demonstrate how to create depth using lighter and darker hues. When I display student work, it is obvious that no two are the same. The art is as individual as my students, and I love it that way.
