PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Grant Wood’s American Gothic painting is considered an American masterpiece. It is a very famous artwork, and it’s a quintessential example of Regionalism. This 37 slide PowerPoint lecture includes 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.

This lecture can stand alone as an art history lesson, or it could be used to introduce students to Regionalism before creating their own artwork.

In addition to the PowerPoint, there are several PDF files included in this zip download. The files include: lecture lesson plan, lecture note organizer, lecture note organizer key, 2 different half-sheet word find, and answer keys to the word finds.

If you are interested in teaching about Grant Wood, but you need a complete unit check out American Gothic Bundle: Lecture and Project. Don’t buy this product if you want to purchase the bundle!
