Integrating English Language Arts and Fine Art is wonderful way to increase student literacy. In these lessons students will create a hand self-portrait identifying their core belief and writing a stream-of-consciousness about who they are; create a found poem from a page of a book, create a mixed media piece of artwork based on a poem they write using the "Where I'm From" poem template and learn to communicate through imagery in the Past and Future Hands lesson.
Be prepared for some pretty deep stuff. These lessons will requires higher level thinking and will take students through a basic understanding of communicating through art.
