Adam Lister Art Project - Contemporary Art History Lesson!

Supporting document included
This is an additional download that supports the video.
I seem to have a certain fondness for contemporary artists with strong ties to classic artists. Not only do I find a particular attraction to the modern, but familiar stylings, but I also think they make great study for today’s kids. It shows students that art doesn’t have to be (in, perhaps their opinion) stuffy, or the study of a bunch of dead guys, but rather that art is a vibrant and fun form of expression that is being practiced by some fairly cool individuals!

Cool individuals such as Adam Lister – an artist your students will get exposure to with this lesson. Adam is a contemporary working artist that students immediately connect to. Adam’s art and style immediately struck a chord with the kids I taught this lesson to as Lego characters and the graphics from the game Minecraft instantly came to their mind–this got their attention right away and raised their interest and anticipation.

I hope you like this teaching video and that it inspires you and your students!
