I am creating curriculum for a K-5 art program for the coming year. One
unit of three that I am developing is a set of six sculpture lessons
that move from relief, through shadow boxes and culminate in a 2
session lesson where students will create a full 3-D piece.
The two artists whose work I am basing my lessons on are Betye Saar and
Martin Puryear. Does anyone have any experience using them in their
Also, do you know of any posters available depicting these artists' work
that I could use in the discussion portion of the lesson? I found one
poster of Martin Puryear's piece "Noblese O" at the Museum of
Contemporary Art here in L.A. and I would like to find one more Puryear
poster and at least two Betye Saar posters, if possible.
Thanks for your help.
