We will start by listening to What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong and discussing what we feel the most grateful for from Mother Earth. Like: The trees of green. The red roses, too. The skies of blue and clouds of white… The colors of the rainbow. Children will choose one or more elements of nature and draw sketches of them. If they need help they will be provided with templates and reference images. From colored papers and magazine pages they cut and tear pieces to create trees,...
Students will have have fun and gain a renewed appreciation for Mother Nature and cultivate the notion of gratitude wile engaging with music and art. They get introduced to the concept of “up-cycling”, i.e. giving value to, or creating something wonderful from discarded materials, such as old magazines. They will gain a deeper understanding of the basic principles of design, such as unity, juxtaposition and contrast. They will practice their precision cutting and tearing skills, and will select colors and patterns for impact and harmony.
I am Visual Arts and Design teacher in a Montessori / International Baccalaureate middle school in Florida, USA. My students and me regularly exercise our creativity through inter-disciplinary projects, with great delight.
Prior to class, students will need to print out the 'What a Wonderful World' music sheet and (optionally) a chosen element of nature template.
4 files available upon enrollmentPrinted out “What a Wonderful World” music sheets Printed out element of nature template (optional) White copy paper Colorful magazine pages Colored construction papers Watercolor paint (optional) Scissors Glue stick
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students will need to make precautions to avoid damaging the surface they work on with glue and paint. They need to be able to use scissors in a safe way.
