4th and 5th Grade Community/Culture Painting
For this painting project, the students explored the idea of community and culture in art. We had a discussion about what community is, what culture is and how they are connected. After viewing examples of artwork created by Romare Bearden, the students brainstormed ideas about characteristics of their own community and culture and how it can be shown in a painting. They then spent a a number of classes completing their paintings.There were a lot of creative ideas and thoughtful, beautiful paintings.
