A CBS Sunday Morning program on Brendan O’connell was the inspiration for this lesson. His work can be seen here:  http://www.brendanoconnell.com/

I showed 5th graders the work of Brendan O’Connell.  After learning about the artist, looking at images and talking about the art, students used packaging and advertisements from different products to create these pieces .

They used oil pastel on art paper.
