|One of the many monks on the streets of Phnom Penh|
When I did Pop Art with the Grade 4's and 5's in Phnom Penh, we talked about people and iconic images that we saw every day in one way or another, Angkor Wat was a big one, so was Independence Monument-- it sits in the middle of the city in honor of Cambodia's independence from France in 1953.
To create these Pop Art pieces, students used FotoFlexer to make line drawings of photos that represented typical Cambodia. Once the line drawings were printed, copied and cut, the kids used florescent tempera to paint carefully. They worked in groups to glue all the bits onto large pieces of cardboard.
We completed 6 in all-- with varying sizes, colors, and subjects. I left them on the walls in my old school but I wish I had taken one with me to hang in my house here in Saudi. :)
