PPT to review the most famous Hispanic and Spanish painters. PPT has 45 slides. Also included new up and coming artists from Colombia and Ecuador. Great to review for Hispanic Heritage Month and make connections to art. This PPT is a nice addition to my Beauty and Aesthetics unit.
Afterwards students select one painter to research. They write a brief biography in Spanish for the painter they selected. To further enhance the lesson I also have them select one painting of the artist they researched and analyze the painting. They have to answer; ¿Cómo se llama la pintura? ¿Por qué has escogido esa pintura? ¿Cuándo el artista pintó la pintura?¿Qué colores usó el pintor? ¿Qué formas o figuras usó el artista? ¿Qué tipo de pintura es (auto-retrato, paisaje, etc.)? ¿Refleja la pintura un código social, cultural o histórico del país? Nombra el espacio. etc.
PPT has two projects for students. One is a writing assignment and the other is an oral presentation. Duration of lesson depends on selection of activities. I had students write a composition but also do a power point presentation. Students were given class time to research and organize their notes.
If time permits, students can also color famous paintings. Below are some links for coloring pages. I would have them color the pages on Fun Fridays. They can also color the pages while viewing a documentary for one of the famous painters. You Tube has many great documentaries.
Great lesson to practice writing while making connections to art.
