Students were inspired by Chanoch Piven’s work in the creation of our Hebrew-Art project. http://www.pivenworld.com/my-dog-is-as-smelly-as-dirty-socks/book-by-hanoch-piven
Each student chose a person from real life or fantasy and described that person’s character: “my mom is funny, my friend is fast, my dog is smart, my sister is sweet, my dad is cool, my teacher is thoughtful, Batman is dark……..” In the week following Pesach break students will be representing these characteristics with items to create a portrait in art. From the students’ writing, here are some ideas to get you started….
SMART things: ruler, computer, calculator, owl, Albert Einstein, dictionary
FUNNY things: smiley face, clown, joke book, Tina Fey, book, feather
FAST things: cheetah, train, lightning, bat
PRETTY things: princes, sunset, flower, spring, summer, sun, mom
SWEET things: candy, sugar, lollipop
CRAZY things: monkey, sugar rush
LOVING things: dog, dad, puppy, friend, heart, bear
WARM things: stove, fire
HELPFUL things: tools, internet
COMFORTING things: bed, pillow
LOUD things: megaphone, whistle, fireworks
SHARP things: knife
BUSY things: squirrel, soccer ball, maid, sprinter
STRONG things: gorilla
COOL things: skateboard, sunglasses
After the Pesach break each student will create her/ his person in art class. The people in the art work will be made out of items. Therefore, we ask the help of all the 4th and 5th grades’ students and families to gather the items/ things listed above and bring them to school.
Please don’t limit yourself to materials!
