This summer, I am teaching in an extended year program for the special education department in which I am teaching them various art projects. As both an art teacher and a special educator, I like to write curriculum and create art projects that are flexible for all ages, all grade levels, and for those that are extremely talented and for those that may need more assistance.
This one is designed to be a curriculum that involves the students traveling each week to different parts of the world to discover the artists native to that area. This is 13 pages and 5 weeks worth of lesson plans/curriculum that can be extended and a materials list on the last page so you can plan what you need.
In this bundle we travel to:
*Boston, Massachusetts - learn about Haymarket Square and Wayne Thiebaud - make paint chip food mosaics
*Japan, South Asia - learn about the artist Hokusai and relief printmaking which is native to Japan
*Australia, Oceania - learn about the Aboriginal art form and dot paintings
*Europe (Focus on Netherlands and France) - learn about Vincent Van Gogh and his love for texture, impressionism, color, and use of line in a cityscape drawing project.
*South America (Amazon Rainforest focus) - learn about the colorful tree frogs and create a drawing project that is based on color.
As you can see we do a mix between focusing on important historical artists, but we also look at native art to each country and animals or the environment.
