This fun and colorful 5 week interactive art unit introduces students to the world of Contemporary Art. Throughout the unit students are required to use higher thinking skills to come up with interpretations of artwork. Many of Marzano's Elements from the Art and Science of Teaching have been incorporated for ultimate growth for your students minds.
The unit culminates with the students production of their own amazing Contemporary piece of ART! Pushing the limits of their creativity by requiring them to think abstractly about the idea of play. This is a lesson that not only teaches your students art, but even more, this lesson teaches your students the ART of THINKING!
