Lesson idea: Architectural Letters

I did not originate this idea and it came from Dick Blick's lesson plan archives. I've seen it done a number of times all over the web (on art education of blogs and also on DIY craft blogs) and this is the second semester that I've done it. I do it with the 2D class as a way to keep them engaged and interested at the close of the semester and also give them just a tiny sampling of the 3D class I teach to bait them a little to stick around longer in the art room.

The students did really well this round - much better than the previous round I did them - if only because they definitely had more time to work on them overall and I let them have a lot more creative  liberties than I did last year. (I don't remember what stipulations I gave them last year but there were some and I realized they weren't really necessary.)

So, without further adieu... here's the final project from 2D. Today was the last day of ALL of my classes and what a way to go out with a bang.

  1. How cool. I wish I was more crafty. My brother and mother are the artists in the family. :)
