The Art of the Fairy Tale: Aesops Fables
What Fairy tales have you read before? Are there any that are important to you? Well, if you have a passion for great stories full of whimsy, then I have a class for you! During our time together in this amazing class we will learn about some of the most famous fables around, reading and making art pieces based around Aesop’s fables. We will use varying medias to create these amazing art pieces, giving students experience in working with and manipulating medias that they might not normally have experience with, all leading to the creation of their own story book! Students will see introductions to each topic, engage in discussion about it, and see a demonstration on the art project related to our topic preparing them to do it all on their own. Students will have hands on experience as well as improve their ability to explain their thoughts and ideas to others, making their thinking visible. So lets get ready, greatness awaits.
