3rd and 4th Grade Art
We began a new project based on the work of Faith Ringgold. This project is a tie into the hot glue gun work we just finished, a connection to the work the students are doing in Language Arts and an opportunity to study a living female artist. I love the accessibility of the work of Faith Ringgold and have found that the students respond well to her work. We began the project by reading her book Tar Beach, watched a short interview with the artist and viewed a power point. The students had a face to face discussion about two of Ringgold's work and then had a group discussion comparing and contrasting the works. They started a paper and fabric background today and will continue work throughout this week on the project. They are off to a strong start on this project.
