Silhouette collage art lesson: students used flashlights to trace each other's silhouette. After cutting them out, the covered them with magazine clipping that described their personalities and interests.
Beginning a class or school year with this question would serve as a basis for teaching the specific students. Keeping this board up all year would also serve as a reminder to the importance of art. Also, allowing students to read what their peers have written might create critical thinking that they did not initially think of.
