Fundred Dollar Bill Project

As part of our "Fun" Fridays, a rotating extra day of Art, students work with a method called Visual Thinking Strategies. VTS builds "thinking skills that become habitual and transfer from lesson to lesson, oral and written language literacy, visual literacy, and collaborative interactions among peers." -quote from VTS website.

Currently we are investigating contemporary artists, talking about their artwork, and how it might directly effect us. Today we talked about the artist Mel Chin and his Paydirt/Fundred project. We even got a chance to design our own Fundred dollar bills!
