Narrative Art with Jacob Lawrence, this lesson starts out with a reflection on the art of Jacob Lawrence with a writing response.
The lesson guides the students through the process of creating a narrative story sketch. Students will use thumbnail sketches to plan out the artwork. Storytelling in art will be used as well as symbolism.
This lesson works well as a back to school lesson and can help the educator and students begin the year by connecting through story telling.
This lesson can be kept in the student art portfolio for assessment.
