I wanted to expose the students to a number of different artists. For our Art Houses, we looked at Mondrian, Kandinsky and Miro.
We used a paper house template from: http://thetoymaker.com/Toypages/35Habitat/35Habitat.html
The students then choose which artist the\y would be inspired by - they added and coloured their design on the paper house template, then cut it out and put it together!
We then followed the same design process, but looked at Georgia O'Keefe, Gustav Klimt and Optical Art and contructed an 'Art Tree' using a cardboard roll and cereal box cardboard.
