We started this lesson by viewing the entertaining video Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists, Claude Monet. After the video we play a review game. The amount of information they remember from the video to ask each other questions about always amazes me.

The second country we explored was Africa. One of the art forms in Africa is the creative dying of material. Our artists got a tie dye effect on socks by using sharpies and rubbing alcohol. Mrs. Beck and I dripped rubbing alcohol on the designs to cause the colors to bleed out to resemble tie dye. This method was used since our time was limited.
Some of our artists decided to make orange and black Central SPIRIT socks. They always come up with the best ideas!
They had a great time playing African drums and learning an African song!
