School Days Approacheth.

This year is Year One at our school. That means we study ancient history--the Greeks, the Romans, the Egyptians....In my particular subject, Year One means we study Ancient Art, Giotto, Rembrandt, Cezanne. I think I definitely want to teach all the greek "vessel silhouettes," which is something I didn't do four years ago, which is the last time we had Year One. Maybe we could do a simplified "tile" collage, after looking at all those beautiful Roman mosaics at Pompeii (sp?).

Giotto--It would be cool to make some sort of art using gold paint, you know, to reference all the gold-leafing....

Rembrant--obviously lends itself to a portrait.

Cezanne--landscapes of some sort.

And then the yearly projects I have each grade level do, no matter what the year.

Does anyone have any brilliant ideas?

Those vessel silhouettes are in our marketing at PwC, although I don't see it on our external website anywhere. The tag line is "Your worlds [vessel] Our people," signifying our interaction with our clients. My favorite icon in our trademarked images is three stacked vessels in black and white.
that's really cool. i'd like to see that sometime. --j
