A Thousand Lessons I Want to Teach
Hinshaw, Craig
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v109 n4 p22-23 Dec 2009
Machu Picchu, the lost city of the Incas in Peru, was recently voted one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. Also in Peru are the mysterious Nazca Lines--a humming bird, a spider, and trapezoids--which are etched in the desert so large they can only be seen from an airplane. The author experienced some of these places recently when he and his wife (also a teacher) traveled for three weeks throughout Peru. They both brought back inspired, first-hand experiences to their students and schools. In this article, four of the art lessons the author developed and taught that dovetailed with the school's curriculum are presented. They were based on the Peruvian Nazca Lines, leaf cutter ants, Moche pottery, and arpilleras.
