First graders were introduced to Rembrandt through a 15 minute portion of the Greatest Artists Video. We looked at how he painted people showing emotions. Then we used this handout below to see a simplified contour line drawing of a face and matched it to Rembrandts' faces by emotions.
I wrote an ABC/25 grant this year to purchase Today is Art Day artist figurines for the art room. At first I thought they would be useful when I teach students about caricatures (like this project) since each figurine is created with an exaggerated head and smaller body. As I had them out waiting to be unboxed, my students were taking so much interest in them, that I decided to unveil each figurine one week at a time and give the entire school population a little art history lesson with some video, image, or discussion at the end of class.
This Flashmob recreates Rembrandt's Night Watch. It's considered one of the most famous paintings in the world.
Here is a Safeshare.TV link to the movie.
