|Cut-up pieces of original piece|
|2011-2012: Starry Night Recreated|
|2011-2012: American Gothic Recreated|
Students continue to recreate and enlarge pieces until all 63 pieces are done (I collect each piece as it's completed to be sure none are lost). Once finished, I hand out all the recreated pieces in a random order to the class. One by one, I call up the pieces in numerical order and glue them down on a piece of butcher paper. Students watch as the famous art piece that was once a cut-up piece on 8.5" x 11" paper is originally recreated by the class on a larger scale. It is one of our favorite pieces of artwork and we prominently hang it in the class. Additional, I also upload it to each students' online portfolio on Artsonia.
Try it with your class and share with me pictures of the final product!
