When an art teacher from a YMCA in Florida decided to clean up her shabby tables and teach her students about graffiti art, she decided to combine the projects and revive the tables with art! A strong emphasis on collaboration and cooperation led to a classroom full of personalized furniture.
This fun lesson begins with drawing the figure Haring-style. Experimenting with different poses, students design and create large-size cut-out constructions.
This ambitious teacher created a fence mural with her students in Sarasota, Florida. Each student's figure drawings becoming full-scale figurative paintings on a bright and bold playground fence.
Sent in by the YMCA in Sarasota, FLorida, this lesson explores the use of multiple figures in the medium of collage.
