PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In 1930, Grant Wood painted his famous American Gothic, which is considered an American masterpiece. This great example of Regionalism should be known by students in the United States. Not only should they be able to identify it, but they should know about its history as well.

This bundle includes two different products. It is a zip file that contains a PowerPoint and PDF files.

American Icon: Grant Wood's American Gothic Lecture includes a 37 slide lecture that features a little bit of background of Iowan artist Wood, his role as a Regionalist, and a lot of detailed information about American Gothic. The presentation covers his process in making the picture, who he used for models, what the painting represents, and how viewers reacted to it. There are checkpoints within the lecture to encourage discussion and help students retain the information presented. There are also lecture note guides, word finds, and answer keys for both.

American Gothic Group Enlargement Photo Op Art Project is about a week long project that complements the information presented in the lecture. It works well for students to work with images after they learn about them in class; it helps them remember the art history information. This project is a cooperative grid drawing, where students will each recreate squares of American Gothic. The version the students will assemble will be missing the face so they can put their own faces in the artwork to take some interesting and funny photographs!
