Collaborative collages. It is from a School Specialty blog. And I just happened to have found a bunch of magazines in my mailbox the other day!
Since the subject of today's blog is using the alphabet in art, check out the cool birthday present from my daughter-
BGIE (Best Gift Idea Ever) while on vacation in St. Augustine. Click on the name to connect to their site. Amazing!! They have over a dozen shops throughout the United States! And their new product, in some of the stores, is putting the letters on magnets. I am hoping to buy a set this week! I have been in touch with the manager at the St. Augustine shop.
They can be used in so many different ways! Centers? Drawing challenges? Inspiration? My mind is going into overload! I was eating pretzels yesterday and was playing and making letters with them! Think of all the fun my students can have making letters with recycled materials and photographing them with iPads. OH YEAH!! Technology in the art room!
Here are a few of the letter photos that I've taken over the last few years:
I know that doing a photography lesson along with the alphabet has been done before. Since my son, who decided to return to school about 2 years ago, did this photo montage as one of his class assignments. I found it interesting that he could use letters from signs as opposed to letters in nature or in architecture. Or from recycles..........
