Stockings for the Artists
Goebel, Kim
Arts & Activities, v146 n4 p38-39 Dec 2009
During each of the holiday seasons, the author tries to come up with a lesson that will incorporate art history and have a holiday theme. One recent winter-holiday season, the author was thumbing through a catalog and saw a picture of note cards that had famous artists' stockings hanging on a mantel. This triggered an idea for the author's fifth-grade classes. This article presents an art project in which upper-elementary students will recognize several famous paintings and be able to name the artists who painted them, use problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, draw bubble letters and fit them in an enclosed area of the stocking, and apply the elements and principles of design effectively in their work.
