Outside Fun

<p>See: Where are these people? What are they doing?</p><p>Think: Have you ever done something like that outside? </p><p>Wonder: I wonder what it would be like to go there.  What would I see, smell, taste, touch, or hear?</p><p>Choose an image and imagine yourself being in that place. Then use that as inspiration for a drawing, painting, or collage. </p>

Art & Culture Sort

<p>First, sort the images by type of art/artist. Teacher should make index card headings for the following categories: Painting/Painter, Textile/Weaver, Clothing/Fashion Designer, Architecture/Architect, Prints/Printmaker, Sculpture/Sculptor, Functional Ceramics/Potter or Ceramist. Sometimes an image may cross categories (painting of a house might be categorized in architecture or painting); either answer would be acceptable if the student can justify why.</p><p>Second, make an educated guess about culture represented in selected images. Students can "guess and check" with teacher. Online research option: students work in pairs to access this collection and click on the info button for an image to learn about the maker, time period, and culture. They can record their findings to help answer the reflection questions below.</p><p>After the sorting activities, ask students to choose an image and answer: <em> Why is/was this object of value (or useful)? How do you think it expresses something important to the people of that culture? </em></p>

Work with a small group to examine an image and find where the artist has juxtaposed symbols or text with the image to create meaning. </li><li>What might you include in an artwork about a festival or celebration?  Would there be dances, special music, food, clothing, or activities?</li></ul><p>Art making challenge:  Collaborate in a small group to create a design for a booth, stage, or other area for a cultural tradition at a festival.
