Hello, how some more Bebo? I recently posted on 6th Grade Bebo Art. BEBO Post. Here's a look at my 8th graders' art.
With my 8th grade, I gave them more options to experiment with Bebo art. I encouraged them to make the Bebo art their own.
I gave a little background information on Bebo. For Bebo art, click here. Here's his bio.
I am an outsider artist. I make my art out of sawmill lumber and other found materials. I sculpt the wood with my saw and sander into shapes of fish, snakes, gators and other critters, flowers, butterflies, etc. I make all sizes from a few inches to 15 feet long. I paint them using enamel paint so that the pieces can be hung outside if you want to. I also make angels and signs with inspirational messages on them. I paint them to remind me how to live. I am a musician and I love the blues, so I make “Bluesmen”, too. God has blessed me through my art.
I gave the option of paper size.
Kids chose a Bebo to work from to adapt in a creative way of their choice.
Kids used acrylic.
I think the kids put their twist on Bebo art and completed with a successful art project.
Speaking of kids putting their spin on someone else's project, I found this cool video that some kid did using 8 mm film. She made the film in high school for a class project in the 70s. The song was "Brand New Key" by Melanie in 1970-1971. Love it!
