The Multicultural Art Print Series (MAPS) is an innovative graphic resource for classrooms. It presents a powerful way to teach about diverse cultures and peoples through their art. Developed in response to educators' requests for more culturally diverse teaching materials, the posters include discussions of the artworks' cultural context, historical background, and media. Discussion questions and activities are provided for elementary, middle school, and secondary grade levels by the four art disciplines: aesthetics, art criticism, art history, and art making.
All MAPS are 18 x 21 in. laminated color posters that include questions based on aesthetics, art criticism, art history, and studio aspects of the image printed on the back.
Each set includes a 32-page teacher's guide containing all the material on the posters as well as black and white reproductions of the images, a map, references, glossary, pronunciation guide, and additional resources. Sets are packaged in sturdy plastic portfolios.
