Dear You Art Project

Mail Art + Pen Friends = Dear You Art Project

Diving into worlds!

2015, 6th Grade, Canada, Dear You Art Workshops, FinlandArlene TuckerComment

We discussed and demonstrated a few different ways that they could get things to be 3D and "pop" from the page. I showed the fold and snip, we talked about tabs of grass they could glue on, and also how they could do an accordion pleat of paper on the back of a shape as well. I did share the video about "Houses" that was posted on Facebook and shared some of the photos Päivi had shared with the entire class, but many were already partway through the project.  My students were very excited, and think that the English class are all much better artists than they are!! :)

I am hoping to set up a display in the library or a glass cabinet of both the places and the puppets when everything arrives.  I'll send photos once I get it organized!

Enjoy your week!
