Introduce students to contemporary artist Todd McLellan with this easy-to-follow guide.
McLellan's series "Things Come Apart" intrigues students with its focus on everyday objects and their individual pieces. Included in this ZIP file are images of the series, discussion prompts for students, suggested activities, a parent letter, and references for online materials.
*UPDATE 2/27/15--Now includes a Word doc for a student artist response that coordinates with the project.
This was a successful project for my fifth grade students, but is easily adaptable to slightly older grades.
