Chairs with Flair
White, Carla Sabatino
School Arts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v104 n9 p47 May-Jun 2005
In the art lesson described in this article, students explore the arts of architecture, design, painting, and sculpture within four time periods: early colonial (1500-1700), late colonial (1700-1776), the quest for independence (1776-1860), and industrialization and growth (1860-1900). Through class discussion, readings, and slide presentations, students understand that in early colonial times in America, most settlers only had simple handmade stools with no backs. As time passed, chair-making became an art. In this lesson, students will create a design for a unique chair.
