Product Description
Fantastic activity exploring the artwork of 1920's and 30's Harlem. High resolution, color images of 10 pieces of African American produced art -- paintings, photos, sculptures, by men and women -- provide students with a great visual experience. Students are provided the titles of the pieces, but not told which art goes with which title. I set it up as a gallery walk, and students move around discussing which title they believe fits with which piece. After they decide, they compete a follow up activity grouping the art into different categories based upon what they saw/experienced. At this point, I go over the answers with students (answers provided), and it is always a fun reveal as they see which pieces went with which title, and if they got it right. At this point, I send them onto the internet to explore more about the lives and work of 2 artists whose work caught their eye. As part of this research, students find a new piece by that artist and try to re-create it using their art skills, to often hilarious results. This is a highlight each unit.
