Well its back to school time, and in preperation for class I began looking up the topic of identity. This is one of the areas that my senior students must complete. I came accross this site and not only did it provide good ideas on identity projects, it provided many other ideas for art class, it is well worth a look. http://www.pbs.org/art21/education/studentartprojects/index.html#. Have any of you run a scheme of work on identity, if so please share…
Are We Addicted to the Internet?
Artist Maurice Mbikayi explores the effects of technology on identity and history, as well as how it has impacted Africa both positively and negatively. His art combines recycled materials such as old keyboard parts to telephone cords. Artwork and photos © Maurice Mbikayi Link via \\\
*Fingerprint Art Project* Use black stamp pad to collect students' fingerprints . Scan in & enlarge to full sheet size . Print a super-lightened image (Lightening original 90% worked great for me!) . Have students write about themselves, their lives, favorite quotes & sayings, positive things . Tada! Beautiful Artwork :) (By Caitie Lou Riddle)
