Change Author / Owner : The Art and Life of William H. Johnson
Students examine works by African American painter William H. Johnson to learn about his milieu as well as his style. This set of lessons is divided into grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12. Younger students list the elements of the pictures, identifying colors and shapes and such objects as farm equipment, crops, and animals. Older students compare Johnson's work with that of painter Allan Rohan Crite.
