Visual Arts teacher Jana DeSimone shares her lesson ideas and the art of her students. This blog is a place for students and adults to see the vast array of art that we are learning about and
creating in 7th
and 8th Grade Visual Arts at Aldrich Junior High School.
When students had finished the collages, I asked them to show evidence of their understanding of the art history that I had presented about Louise's life and career. They re-visited the handouts that I had made for them, where they located important information.
Instead of filling in a worksheet, I decided to ask them to create a visual timeline of the key events in her life. This is a close-up of Ethan's timeline that shows the first half of the artist's life.
