In the Classroom: Coat of Arms

Anne Phillips spent four days with Art Teacher, Ms. Hundley’s, third grade students at Deyton Elementary School.  Ms. Hundley had been in the middle of a lesson on the Middle Ages so Anne continued the theme with the study of heraldry and coat of arms.  Each student received an example of a traditional Medieval symbol and was asked to create their own version.  Students drew symbols in pencil on tag board, covered the pencil lines with glue (let to dry), then wrapped the tag board with foil and rubbed it with their hands and Q tips until the “glue” design was visible.  They then covered the entire piece in black shoe polish (multiple times until achieving the desired effect).  Students added more detailed designs with very dull pencils on the final product.
