some love and heart art...and maybe a mad mama!

by karen #1965 third grade teacher so love is in the air...you can't see it...until u make some heart art...then, you can see it...and third graders are all about some concrete stuff...so u know we had to make it so we could see it and then i had to blog it so u cud see it...i got this idea from this picture at a museum that was about to close and so no one was looking and i had vdf take my picture with a buncha art...check it out...
oh yeah....robert indiana is the guy...tons of cool stuff...name wasn't indiana, but he was from indiana, and i guess he liked the name so he just up and changed it to indiana...i could change my name to karen georgia...all the kids would say, "mrs. georgia, where do we put the papers when we are done?" or "mrs. georgia, he cutted in front of me!"...cutted in front of me...don't u love that one?..i just love it to pieces...i can't believe they get so upset about cutting in line...i mean, hey...we are lining up to go to the dang classroom to do social studies on an extra boring lesson and dang if they don't fight about who is gonna be first...i say, "kids, who cares?...i mean am i giving the first person to go in the classroom a dang one hundred dollar bill?"...

so...back to robert indiana...that was robert clark...so why did he change his name?...here is what he some writer for the boston globe got out of robert..."Because in perusing the telephone book of any city in America, you will simply find there are too many Clarks. So, inspired by Tennessee Williams, I chose a better handle."...yeah he said it on June 21, 2009...and the writer asked him this, "You're best known for your LOVE sculpture with the tilted 'O.'  There have been so many reproductions of this iconic image that everyone seems to know it. What do you make of all this?" Robert Indiana said, "There were 333 million Love stamps, and now the post office is ripping me off and producing Love clocks, Love dishes, cups, and saucers -- all made in China, of course. The Love clocks are fun, and I have a couple. They keep good time. I'm afraid I'm haunted by that image. It's been used badly for a long time...."

remember the stamp?...well, i found the stamp made into a clock...check out the price of the stamp...8 cents...yeppers...the price was 8 cents...but we complain cause it costs 44 cents...but really folks...do u use stamps much?...cause i mean when u think about it...life is easier in 2011 than it was in 1973 when that 8 cent stamp was issued...we email for free...u know...snail mail is like words arriving at your house in a cadillac...next time you get a letter, you should send an email and thank the person for spending 44 cents on u...really...so here is the infamous stamp...wall clock costs about $40.00!
alright...here is your art activity...cause that is what this blog is about...talk about robert...show this little video from YouTube IMA moves Robert's art out of the museum ...and do this art activity...straws and paint..

oopsy on the $45 jacket...acrylic, washable?...aghhh, yeah...sure, mama!
mama's do not always love me!

Laa Lalalala...
Whatever mama say you best do it
Whatever mama say you best do
Whatever mama say, you better listen to your mama
Go wash your face, use some soap
Make your bed, fold your clothes
Clean your plate and chew your food
Don't talk back don't be rude
Get your shoes off at the door
Don't track no mud along this floor
Don't forget to take the garbage out
Don't want no excuses anymore
Call your sister, cut the grass
Think you're smart? Not so fast
Take your fingers off the remote control because mama's watching that
Do the dishes, feed the dog
Put out the cat and praise the Lord
It wouldn't hurt you to go to church any once in awhile
I'm just keep doing what my mama says
I'm gonna do…
Mama said that I should settle down with a girl like you
I'm gonna work real hard, it's what I'm gonna do
I'm gonna give you all my love and then make you a mama too!
Sugar that's what I'm a gonna doooo
I'm gonna make you a mama too
Lala lalalalalala
Whatever mama say you best do it
Whatever mama say you best do
Whatever mama say, you better listen to your mama
I won't lean back in my chair,
Will not run down the stairs
And in case of emergency, I'll wear some fresh underwear
I'll take the car in, when it's in need of repair
I'm gonna get myself a job
But I won't cut my hair
I beg your pardon, that's what my mama say
"Boy don't get smart and don't talk to me that way
Who do you think you are boy you better behave
I gave you life, child I can take it away!"
What mama say
I'm a gonna do…
Mama said that I should settle down with a girl like you
I'll work real hard, it's what I'm gonna do
I'm gonna give you all my love
And then make you a mama too!
Oh, that's what I'm a gonna doooo
I'm gonna make you a mama too.
Singing lalala lalalaaaaa
Singing that's what I'm a gonna doooo
I'm gonna make you a mama too.
Singing that's what I'm a gonna doooo
I'm gonna make you a mama too.
Singing lalalala Lalalala
Whatever mama say you best do it
Whatever mama say you best do
Whatever mama say, you better listen to your mama!
