For this unit I read Mercer Mayer's There's a Nightmare in My Closet. Students began by inventing a nightmare all whilst remembering solid color, originality and filling the space. The next step students received a cardboard room with a pre-drawn closet door, rug and floor that they used primary colored paints to color in. Students then had to decorate their room with design, color in with colored pencil and invent a poster that also was colored with colored pencil. The final steps were learned how to create a pop-up dresser using a stacking method, creating a cardboard lamp, toys, banner for their door, pasting their monsters' behind the door and finally a bead for the doorknob.
Hello, thank you for visiting my blog! I'm so excited to share my teaching journey and display lessons with artists, fellow art educators and parents of the students I'm so honored to teach.
