I am going to use this post to give a birthday shout out to my blogging partner and good friend. One of the things I most respect about Lesson Lady is that she one of the most honest people I know. But, she is also so much more: hardworking, smart, frugal, great at cooking, artistic, resourceful, thoughtful, and kind. She has always avoided negative chatter and been a trustworthy confidante. I wish her a great year ahead.
With that, I would like to advise all you teachers out there who are looking for a great art project to check out the art lessons she has for sale at her store. I especially like her Art of the World series. Here are a couple examples...
Art of the World-Benin Masks
Have your student make a mask while learning about the Benin people of Africa.
Art of the World-Frida Kahlo
Have your students make a collage in the style of the famous female Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo.
She has a birthday sale on through the end of the day tomorrow. Check it out!
