Egyptian Collar + Photo Challenge
Egyptians are known for advanced architecture, lavish monuments, and intricate decorations. They also paid close attention to how they dressed themselves. Elaborate jewelry was one way that they demonstrated their social status and wealth.
This elementary art lesson is inspired by Egyptian collar pieces and the frontalism painting style found inside the ancient pyramids. Students will create a wearable piece of art, a paper collar, using metallic paint and colorful permanent markers. Each student will wear their project for a photo challenge to create a visual narrative.
This 15-page lesson plan includes: information about the artwork, objectives, National Core Arts Standards, materials list, procedure, and assessment, as well as resources, and student examples for inspiration.
