ACTIVISM THROUGH ART, GRADES 9–12
Rating
0.0 stars

This collection of lesson plans investigates ways artists address political and social issues through their
practice. By carefully examining three works of art from the Chazen’s collection, students will be able
to consider what activism is and how it relates to them and their community. The artwork used in the
curriculum ranges from photographs of schoolchildren exploring their use of language (Ewald) to a
silhouette narrative examining our nation’s fraught history with racism (Walker). The artwork is diverse
in medium, subject, tone, and message. However, several universal themes are present.
The artwork in this collection connects to activism through:
• Addressing histories of oppression
• Considering issues of representation
• Bringing awareness to social and political issues

Animating Media Literacy

Rating
0.0 stars

We know that the everyday lives of our students are inundated with media. This often-overwhelming menu of media-rich entrées gets served up at a rate that seems to value overconsumption more than proper and meaningful digestion. As educators, we may be left wondering, how do we beef up (or tofu up , if you prefer) our students’ appetites for media-literacy so that they can skillfully navigate our ever-changing, media-saturated landscape?

Art 1. Lesson plans for beginner Art program.
Rating
0.0 stars

This site explores the elements of art and principles of design with videos, examples and lessons.

The elements and principles of design are the building blocks used to create a work of art.

Elements of Art are the visual "tools" that artists use to create an art work - they are what makes up an image or an art object: line, shape/form, value, color, space, and texture.

Principles of Design are the ways artists use the Elements of Art in an artwork - this is "what we do with the Elements" - how we arrange them, how we balance them, what is being emphasized, etc. The principles are: balance, contrast, repetition, emphasis, and unity.

This is an excellent set of videos for learning about various art topics.

From the YouTube channel description: "The Art Assignment is a weekly PBS Digital Studios production hosted by curator Sarah Urist Green. We explore art and art history through the lens of things happening today. Check for new episodes every other Thursday!"

Note: In 2020 it was decided that they would reevaluate and produce videos at a slower pace, with about 6 per year. However, the videos that are posted are very high quality, and helpful for either teaching certain concepts, or for teachers to learn from.
