I love this project for many reasons, the main one being the students also love it! My one reccommendation is if one student does a couple don't let anyone else do that couple. Otherwise you would have a bunch of sponge bob and patrick american gothics. But, if they come up with a different "couple," then the can repeat one of the cartoons (aka a student can do sponge bob an patrick, and another can do spongebob and gary). I find that by making the students think of different couples helps them be a little more creative with their "couples." I have a few more pics I'll post soon! Here is the first time I did this project.

  1. I love whipping out this project! I do this with American Gothic and the Mona Lisa. I love to see all the ideas my students come up with... from Star Wars, Mickey & Minnie, to even Snooki! Did you use paint? The colors are so bold! I use colored pencils because the craftsmanship of my students and painting small details is not the best. Yours look great!

  2. This is a dream project for an older elementary student! But they are very beautifully executed as well - I'm impressed! I will have to save this one in my favorites folder. My students will love me for it. :)

  3. I love these.
    May I ask how big the paper is you did this on?

    What a great interpretation of a famous painting
