I compiled these artist profiles and lesson plans in honor of Black History Month, but the projects really could be integrated into your classes year round.
Your students will learn to create figure sculptures, like Harlem Renaissance artist Augusta Savage, to create cut-paper collages like Kara Walker, to draw abstracted portraits like Jean-Michel Basquiat and more!
Included in this download, you will receive:
- 5 artist profiles highlighting eminent African American Artists
- 5 Step-by-step, instructional lesson plans, with pictures
Projects include; Cut-paper collage, abstraction, figure sculpture, found object assemblage and wheat-paste composition.
