Art First Nations: Tradition and Innovation. Student Workbook 1.
Zuk, W. M.; Bergland, D. L.
This student workbook, a companion to a comprehensive teacher's guide and 20 laminated art reproductions, is part of an instructional resource designed to assist teachers in incorporating Native American studies into the elementary art program and general curriculum. It highlights visual art which is actively being innovated by aboriginal artists throughout North America and focuses on ways important cultural beliefs and values are being renewed through visual expression. The program consists of five units, each dealing with one of the major geographical regions of North America. Each unit consists of two self-contained modules which can be taught in any order. These draw on a comparative picture method to show relationships between tradition and innovation by featuring both a traditional and innovative artist, and encouraging examination of the similarities and differences in those cultures and artworks. Artists and cultures examined are: Unit 1: Southwest, (1) David Johns and Mary Taylor (Navajo) and (2) Jesse Monongye (Navajo/Hopi) and Anonymous (Salado); Unit 2: Arctic, (1) Kenojuak and Innukjuakjuk (Inuit) and (2) Jessie Oonark (Inuit) and Anonymous (Dorset); Unit 3: Eastern Woodlands, (1) Philip Young (Micmac) and Anonymous (Penobscot) and (2) two works by Norval Morrisseau (Ojibway); Unit 4: Plains, (1) Sarain Stump (Shoshone) and Anonymous (Sioux) and (2) Joane Cardinal-Schubert (Piegan) and Anonymous (Pawnee); and Unit 5: Northwest Coast, (1) Art Thompson and Anonymous (Nu Chal Nuth) and (2) Linda & Dempsey Bob and Anonymous (Tlingit/Tahltan). The student workbook includes a culture map, time lines, small color art reproductions, culture descriptions, artist biographies, and art study worksheets for each module of the five units. (MM)
