Hello All:
I've tried a couple of times to get a message through, but have also
experienced some trouble.
If any of you have any lesson plan ideas (for high school level-basically
covering Beg. Art, Drawing I, Painting I, Design I) that can go
hand-in-hand with art history presentations on Renaissance Art (Italian and
Northern Europe) and also the later groups of the Fauves, Impressionists,
Surrealists, and inclusion of Hopper, Wyeth, and Homer, I'd be very
I have usually presented an art history "personality" weekly to all my
classes. I try to make it as interesting as possible by focusing not only
on the artist's work, but also covering the life of the artist-the
personality traits-the oddities he or she may have exhibited, etc... Did
anyone read about the one art teacher who donned makeup and clothing to
make his presentations more realistic. He'd actually "become" that artist
and even speak with whatever accent was needed. He reported that his
students would be rivited throughout these presentations and, on occasion,
would be moved to tears when hearing about the life some of these artists led.
Looking forward to some of your ideas!
Thanks in advance!
