Claes Oldenburg "Modern 'POP' Art"
I use to teach art at Rising Starr Middle School. I recently was looking for something and pulled out my portfolio that I kept from my days at RSMS. I had to post this...Yes, It was a great lesson. I worked with the Cafeteria staff on this one. We collaborated with Family and Consumer Science (Home Ec) with my good buddy Carmen Eiserman. We also consulted with Karen Spangler of the Fayete County Board of Education's C.A.R.E Team to create a bulletin board and wall display of items labeled "Food For Thought". The C.A.R.E. Team represented Children at Risk in Education. click here to learn more. We networked and got the whole school and community involved with this art history lesson.
