I had been planning a lesson based on her work for quite a while, yet it took some time to finally do it.
First we watched the videos about her work. We also looked at various wing shapes and talked about pattern and zentangle designs.
What you need:
- Black paper
- White markers
- Pencils and erasers
- Camera, printer
- Blue tac
- Take a photo of each child with their arms stretched out as if posing in front of a wings mural
- On a black piece of paper get them to draw their wing shape and go over with white marker
- Fill in wings with pattern and zentangles
- Print out photo, cut out and blue tac (or you could glue) on.
So so love these too. I have my children's up in our house.
For my school class where I couldn't take photos of them they added a printed dog, as Kelsey often takes photos of dogs posing with her wing murals.
Since these wings would be too hard for my preschoolers I came up with an alternative. I pre cut wings out of black paper, got them to decorate them with white paint and glitter. Once dry I added some cardboard to the back with sting attached to it and some bamboo skewers to hold up the paper. They children then wore their wings home the following week...
