Ai WeiWei is an extraordinary contemporary artist whose work naturally lends itself to critical thinking as an audience's response. This packet provides links to five online readings about Ai WeiWei's cultural art installation of ceramic sunflower seeds at the Tate Modern in 2010.
After reading the articles, students select two out of five essay response choices. These are critical thinking questions that ask students to consider deep concepts.
Following the essay prompts is a G.R.A.S.P.S. assignment that provides guidelines for an art project conceptualized by students. As the project finishes up, students use the reflection page to provide information to their audience that could contribute to an artist statement.
