    just did this with my sixth graders:

    put on some interesting instrumental music--i found some african drum music on itunes--have students draw on paper (i told mine NO concrete pictures--only abstract).

    then have a gallery stroll--give every child set of tiny post-its--at each artwork, they write one (positive, school-appropriate) adjective to describe the art and post on BACK of art.

    then students get their own and (1) make sure all are adjectives--if not, discard and (2) rearrange to make a poem--then rewrite. i gave my kids the option of adding A FEW other words to make statements. (in my example, i used only the adjectives, but i made the title: Life in the Big City)

    another idea: give them magazines and have them cut out pictures and then give the pictures adjectives. (ad for hair product: clean, shiny, brown, short....)
