Great point on the Eurocentric aspect. I still thought it was fun to
sleep on the decision. I guess I really am ready to go back to school! I
looked at the question as a fun challenge...
da Vinci for inventiveness and thinking outside the box
Cassatt because Impressionism displayed a reaction to technology (hence
making ties to what we are doing in the present- could have been Monet but we
needed an American and a woman- and Cassatt's images of family life ties in
well at the elementary level...)
Picasso- for breaking ground over and over again that lead to so many others
being able to do so...
van Gogh, for the expression and sutability of much of his subject matter to
my grade level (K-5)
Matisse, because children delight, as I do, in the beaut(dangerous term, I
know...) of his use of elements of design- I want to teach COLOR, line, and
shape beginning in kindergarten. They love his work! If they are excited by
and connect with him- HE STAYS!
Can I add a 6th? WALASSE TING!!!
