Famous Art Parody (7th 8th)
Towards the end of the term my students needed a humorous assignment, so we used cartoon characters and famous art to make a parody.
--Taking two ideas and making them one
--Famous art work
The students were to pick out cartoon characters from TV, comics, or video games to re-draw into a famous art piece of their choice. The paper I choose for the final insured that the students would need to redraw the pictures and not trace them. Once they had drawn their characters and the artwork they would be inhibiting, students added color with a medium of their choice.
