My district offers courses for the students to take that range from Physical Education to Cooking based on literature to Techno-Wars to Chess! Of course, I teach art! Last year, I taught a painting color theory class, this year we did Art Around the World!
We learned about different countries and the traditional art or architecture that came from there and made our own!
1st country was the USA:
Then we traveled to the Central African Republic and discussed their butterfly wing collages. We made some collages of our own as well! (No butterflies were harmed in the making of this artwork)
Then we traveled to ancient Egypt and spoke about their orthostats.
Finally, we went to Australia and learned about the indigenous people there called the Aborigines and their traditional dot art. (Which also turned into a pointallism lesson)
