Peter Max  was inspired by a variety of people in many cultures.   The fifth graders read the Scholastic Arts Magazine celebrating his life and work.  There were truly excited to see what he did and how colorful his work was.The assignment for the next class was to use the style of Peter Max  to create their own piece of work.  Usually I would have lots of questions like “Can I do…….?.”.   My answer was , it is your piece off work, you are in charge.  This year I have tried to generate s’more lessons that increase the student’s own production of new ideas.  This has always been the area where my students are the weakest.   As I walked around the room, the children embraced the creative side of Peter Max.  Stay tuned to see the final outcomes of this lesson.
