I was hoping we could share a few great art/art ed activities for college students. As for me, here are a few that worked well:
*having students collect natural objects (corn, apples, leaves) and list other objects that are similar in texture, size, shape, color. Then they create an entirely new composition using their secondary list - so that hair could be made of corn, etc.
*having students pretend a work of art must be moved and so they create a new space for it and collage, draw, or paint the work into a new space.
*having students make prints with vegetables and other objects to create a motif
*having students create a functional musical instrument (bottles for tones, etc)
