One of the more lighthearted activities we have planned for our Grade 10 trip to Washington is Classical Art Memes!
Global Context: Personal and Cultural Expression (exploration: social constructions of reality)
We will start off this activity, with the serious prompt "What is Art?"...
...we will then move onto "What is a meme?"
We will then show some students come classical art memes we have found online, (best to do this, instead of letting them freely search, because some online are inapropro...)
Students will be tasked with creating their own.
We may also let them use any photo manipulation tool they want... Here is an example of people using the Face App on works on art:
This activity can easily be adapted for any art gallery...
