This is a three-page PDF that bases a cultural art project off of national flags. The first page is an introduction to the artwork (found here: http://twistedsifter.com/2011/10/flags-made-from-food/); the second page is a critical response of this artwork; the third page is a research sheet to help students prepare to create a similar artwork.
I use this with middle schoolers, but it could be used in high school also.
Please check my store for additional art resources. Leave feedback too! :)
