Attention art ed. fans!
We are begining to develop lesson plans around issues. Our
issue is around Ecological restoration, more specifically, Human and
animal interaction. We decided to generate conversation among students
to include current community issues dealing with our negative impact on
animals. This could include, construction of housing developments, new
highway projects, ect. Then discuss what we do to help the animal
kingdom ie. zoos and parks. Ask them how many good versus bad
environments we have in the community. If we decide our community needs
help figure out ways to do that. Show the students ways that popular
artist make statements around this issue. We found artist such as
Jimenez, Wegman and Lascaux paintings. What is important that the
students get the awareness on how we impact our environment and what we
can do to change that. After all of our inquiry we will use our
generated ideas to create art work. I thought of taking a walk around
our environment and documenting all that needs improved. Then later
writing a criticm that talks about how to improve it. Write now I am
just generating ideas and looking for opinions about my issue and how to
apply it into a lesson.
