Back in 2011, when I wrote the original post, my 3rd grade students had learned about pop art, cubism, and surrealism. So discovering Michael Albert was perfect. Here was an artist who couldn't bear to throw way a Frosted Flakes box, so what did he do? He cut it apart and collaged it, of course! It has the shattered look of cubism, the pop cultural relevance of pop art, and the added bonus of being made from a cereal box. And so, 'cerealism' was born!
