This week’s Lesson Plan Wednesday is Patterned Crazy Quilts. A good friend of mine (who is an awesomely talented artist and super-duper art teacher) from my graduate school cohort, The Art Ninja, designed this lesson plan and I put it into my usual format. And, he very generously gave me permission to share it with you! The Art Ninja does not have a blog. . .yet. But, if you would like to contact him with questions and/or ideas you can do so by clicking on his name, which will give you his email address. I would suggest this project for 3rd/4th graders or even older (I prefer 3rd). This is a great intro or review of patterns for elementary students. My students LOVED getting to draw themselves asleep. And, now that they are finished, I think for next time it would be fun to draw a “dream bubble.” Overall, the students love them and they learn a lot from them.
Also, please note, I put all of the Georgia Performance Standards for Visual Arts at the top of all of my lesson plans. I print them out, put them in a binder, and then highlight the standards to which the project adheres. If you are not in Georgia, you will probably want to delete/ignore this part of the LP.
