A New Look at America's Welcome Sign
Ayala, Cindy
Arts & Activities, v145 n5 p39, 42 Jun 2009
Thinking how inspired her middle-school students are by color, the author turned to a book about the life and art of Peter Max as inspiration for this lesson. Though Max's first recollection of creating art was coloring his family's steamer trunks with a crayon, he would later pick up a paintbrush to create bold and exciting designs. He went on to become one of New York's most loved artists, and one subject Max loved best was the Statue of Liberty. In this article, the author describes an art project wherein her students gave the Statue of Liberty a new look using clay as medium.
