Teachers Lesson Plans
My Own Blanket: Grade K-3
Ask your students to make several sketches to help them when they are producing their artwork. They should be using concepts of symmetry and asymmetry.
After sketching their shapes on the 11? x 17? paper and choosing their colours, the students will use them as a pattern for cutting out pieces of felt and/or cloth.
Ask the students to make a collage on their piece of white cloth.
Punch holes at the ends of the artworks and insert string, laces or leather cords so the artwork can be hung on the wall.
Signing and titling the work: Give each student a label and ask them to write on it the title of the artwork, the name of the artist, and the materials used to create the work.
