Plan an imaginary trip anywhere in the world; then draw and paint groups in the clothes of the culture.
Working in small groups, students research foreign countries to visit and select a single country. Groups develop a travel budget for an imaginary tour. What will you take with you? What will you pay for while you are there? How much will the trip cost in total, and for each person? If you had a year to save for the trip, how much would you need to save each week? Find out what the climate is like at the time of year you will arrive, and the kind of clothing that is traditional for the area in that season.
Using Crayola® Crayons on a large sheet of watercolor paper, students make heavy outlines of imaginary tour group wearing traditional clothing for the culture visited. Design fabrics, colors, and designs common to the culture.
Outline a background scene of one place on the visit.
For dense color, paint Crayola Washable Tempera on dry paper with a Crayola Paint Brush.
For lighter colors, wet portions of the drawing and thin paint with water. Let colors bleed and blend into each other for a softer effect. Dry.
Once artwork is complete and dry, student groups prepare a presentation for classmates focused on their selected country and including researched facts collected by the group. Allow students to present to small groups of classmates.
