Just in time for the Lunar New Year, introduce your students to the history and making of a useful and artistic object, the fan! The fan has been utilized by people all around the world dating back thousands of years. Fans can be a gateway for the art of illustration and painting, music and dance, poetry and writing, mathematical concepts, science, cultural understanding and art appreciation.
Sherie will present a variety of art media and techniques to produce fans in a classroom setting. The lesson can be adapted to any level of instruction and covers cross-curricular ideas while meeting state teaching standards.
