Creating a New Classic Work of Art Project
Have the students choose a classic painting they would like to manipulate and have them add, remove, and distort items to make it represent a book they just read, an historical place, or anything that is relevant to the class. Maybe it should represent them or convey a message of some sort. You can make it fit almost any content being learned.
After they have created their image, have them share it with the class and explain it’s meaning. Having and creating the graphic representation will also help them retain what they learned better than they would without it.
