Celtic Roads
Kinney, Jan
Arts & Activities, v145 n2 p30-31 Mar 2009
Building upon lessons learned is relevant to art and life. As an art teacher dealing with teens, the author tries to give her students an understanding of art as a window to the "big picture" as well as a practical, relevant skill. She developed this lesson plan, "Celtic Roads," with that objective in mind. The success rate is high, the product is fabulous and the pride factor is evident. At the beginning of the lesson, the author gives a brief history lecture using a PowerPoint slideshow of ancient Celtic monuments, artifacts, examples of Celtic-influenced Christian art and architecture. Also included are current Celtic-based designs on CD covers, posters and body art. During their open discussion during the slideshow, students come to the natural conclusion that there exists a flow of inspiration through past, present and future. This project is step-by-step intensive, but very rewarding. Her special-needs students are successful and pleased with their work. Advanced Placement two-dimensional design students can include this project in portfolios.
