works inspired by Edelmann's Yellow Submarine

Fifth graders engaged in a discussion about careers in art and design.  We looked at the creations of architects and interior designers, animators and illustrators, package and product designers.  We discussed the cultural impact of Heinz Edelmann's designs for the Beatles' Yellow Submarine album cover, movie animations and merchandising, and then we created our own work using elements of this 1960's style - fantastic, colorful, whimsical.
