My goal is to give my students memorable experiences and not just teach lessons.  I want them to learn about different cultures and develop an appreciation.  My “Welcome to Japan” lesson  is part of my  “Art around the world unit. They will learn about Japanese Art, language, clothes, food, culture and traditions.  Before they enter my class they need to present their passport. They will then be interviewed prior to entering  and their passports will be stamped. They enjoy every minute.  They are my Lil’ Samurai’s and I am “Sensei Perez”

Here is a cool High School Lesson where I introduced Pop Art and the work of Roy Lichtenstein to my students.  I showed them some examples and discussed the meticulous use of benday dots.   The students first searched for a magazine image of their choice.  They then traced the image using contour lines only.  They then transferred the image on white paper using charcoal transfer paper.  Next students outlined their image using a black sharpie.  Students then began to paint their design using primary colors only.  I had my students use Q-tips for their benday dots, some chose to use a ruler aswell to line them up properly.  Remind your students to practice their dots on a seperate paper prior to beginning.  Once students are done with their dots they will use black acrylic to paint everything they outlined in sharpie.  I had my students add a caption to give their design a more comic book effect, however it is not necessary.  Have fun🎨
