Art Education, v68 n3 p40-46 May 2015
Art educators are concerned with exposing their students to contemporary art making practices. They aim to create fresh lessons that expand their understandings of art in today's world while highlighting the importance of imagination. With a personal interest in performance and street art (art forms that have gained popularity in recent years), The authors of this article continuously seek ways to include such exciting processes in their curriculum. This article explores an engaging lesson inspired by Robin Rhode, a South African contemporary performance artist, that asks students to perform and document intraactions with static, chalk-drawn reimagined worlds.
