Harlem Renaissance lesson plans for new painters


Date: Tue Apr 15 2003 - 17:38:48 PDT

Hi there--

Does anyone have any good lesson plans that would tie into an intro to painting (after a unit on color theory) with the Harlem Renaissance? Earlier this year the kids studied Romare Bearden, and since they're currently working on a huge quilt, they just finished an art history assignment on Faith Ringgold.

I'm STILL having a hard time making them understand just what Harlem is (i.e. "a city in New York?"....sigh) and so I thought it might be interesting to have a project that introduces another artist from Harlem while jump-starting my beginning painters....
