For children to develop an
understanding of the art
movement 'Dada' by creating their
own piece of dad artwork using
1. Students will have art history knowledge of the art
2. Students will use a scanner to produce their own
3. Students will use an appropriate scanning program and
painting or drawing programs on the computer to
produce their own artwork.
1. Show Da Vinci's 'Mona Lisa' to the class. Discuss the
work, who knows it? Where have they seen it? Is this
painting famous? Why?
2. Show Marcel Duchamp's version of the Mona Lisa with a
moustache and beard. Discuss this image, how is it
different from the first 'Mona Lisa'? What do you think
the artist Duchamp was trying to show by putting facial
hair on this famous painting?
3. Explain that Duchamp was a member of an art
movement called Dada. Discuss the spirit of Dada, as
ant-art, destructive, humorous, challenging to traditional
ideas of 'high art', and show examples.
4. Tell children they are going to make their own piece of
Dada and model the process:
Choose a painting by a famous artist from one of the art
books you have gathered. Scan the image into the
computer. Insert the image into a drawing or painting
program and use the toolbox to 'dadify' it.
Dadaism began in 1916 in Zurich and was a direct result of
revulsion and rebellion against the horrors of World War I.
Dada is a French word that when translated means hobby
With Dadaism, usual, everyday objects were altered ever so
slightly and called "art". Prime example being Marcel
Duchamp's "Fountain" which was actually a urinal that he
signed "R. Mutt". The idea here was that art really meant
nothing and had no purpose whatsoever. The artists involved
were essentially ridiculing those who came before them.
Rebels you might say.
Dada art ranged from nonsense poetry to physical attacks on
Using Google really well....

Teacher PL Requests
Use MindMeister to cluster these
ideas so we can make a plan
Check the rules – if students have to be over 13yrs, then best if the
teacher sets up the blogs.
Blogspot seems to be the easiest, you need a gmail account to set-
Change the permissions & settings so that you have NZ time & can
monitor the posts.
Learn how to embed videos, audio, interactive activities etc.
You can link blogs so that others can comment on posts.
Make sure you have the right accounts set-up – Youtube,
TeacherTube, Scribd, SlideShare, Blabberize, Vimeo etc.
Upload your files to the appropriate account.
Copy the embed code – always look for embed.
Find the HTML or relevant place to paste the embed code, then you
