Transcript of Transformation

What's the BIG IDEA? TR TRANSFORMATION How do artists use creativity to transform objects?
How do artists transform objecst to create new meanings? How do I want them to experience and learn responses to the essential questions?
By making you look at something familiar in a new way - Tara Donovan, Joseph Cornell, Cornelia Parker, Tony Cragg
By expressing a personal meaning in a way others can relate to - Do Ho Suh
By sorting and categorizing in new ways to create new connetions- Joseph Cornell, Tony Cragg
By using the premise of power in numbers - Tony Cragg, Tara Donovan, Do Ho Suh Rationale Many Contemporary artists make the ordiary extraordinary. So much so that the question is too frequently asked "but is it art?". While students at the 4th and 5th grade level do show a preferance and tendency for realistic, that does not negate the need to expose them to and let them experience art that is more abstract or conceptual.
Marcel Duchamp was on eof the earliest artists to use everyday objects in art when he created and presented his "ready-mades". Since then, artists such as Joseph Cornell, Tony Cragg, Cornelia Parker, Tara Donovan and Do Ho Suh have used or transformed everyday objects into artworks.
Students often think that if they cannot draw they are not a good artist. By teaching them skills to think like an artist and to see where other artists get their inspiration, students may begin to build confidence and find ways to create art in their everyday lives using everyday materials.
