Loving Those Abstracts
School Arts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v103 n5 p28 Jan 2004
The author describes a lesson she did on abstract art with her high school art classes. She passed out a required step-by-step outline of the project process. She asked each of them to look at abstract art. They were to list five or six abstract artists they thought were interesting, narrow their list down to the one most personally intriguing, and do a bit of research, and finally complete a paper in which they included a little biography, information regarding the timely importance of their artist, and short critiques of two artworks they photocopy or print. Their personal critiques were imperative. They structured their final painting to resemble the style of their chosen artist in their final project. A "Web Link" list of web sites related to topics discussed in the article is included.
