I had my sub do these with my students and I think they turned out great! I made the power point on the link below, but encouraged them to use it as a guide and add their own creative style. They created the red berries with their finger prints and used felt to make the bird. These were all made on inserts from boxes that made a great sturdy canvas.

Stuffed Cooperative Tea Cups and Stacked Cups all made for Miss Spider's Tea Party! Thanks to our influence from Mary Cassatt and her painting "The Tea".
These stacked cups were also inspired from by:
"3rd Grade Teacups Inspired by Alice in Wonderland (Botello)"
by Alexandra1915 (Art ID #18062619)
from Brunswick Acres Elementary School— grade 3. They were just to perfect to go along with our Mary Cassatt study and Miss Spider's tea party. My 3-4th grade did the stacked cups and my 5th and 6th graders did the "Cooperative Cups" below that they stuffed!

Love this book and the artwork in it! In this book a snail tells the story as he tries to find the artwork that looks like him. He goes through a variety of artworks from famous artist to find him before he finds his Matisse portrait. My students created "painting with scissors" snail shells then used water colors to paint the snail and background. Oh they look so "snail-tisse"!
