She and her 7th graders completed them this last spring. I really liked them and know I want to try this lesson right away this fall, so I've asked her if I might repost a link here in my blog to jog my memory a month from now.
She also had her 8th graders doing batik images with crayon, crinkled paper, and washes of acrylic. They were beautiful too. I really liked the strong black outlines in her students' work.
As I run across resources for this unit, I've been posting them in this blog and on my Pinterest page. You may want to check out that website. It is a great place to save images and they list the source for the image so that you may get back to it like any one of your favorites or bookmarked sites. I think I am going to like it a lot for saving art lesson ideas! I haven't accumulated too many photos yet, but I intend to make it a resource for myself and others and I anticipate making many more categories!
For example, I pinned this cute little watercolor resist piece done by one of Anne's summer school students and it enables me to quickly go back to her blog "Use Your Colored Pencils" and read more about her lesson. When I save it in my pinterest page provides and automatic link back to the source.
What other batik ideas have you done with children for art lessons?
