SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v106 n5 p38-39 Jan 2007
Anna Mary Robertson Moses, popularly known as Grandma Moses, may be the most famous American folk artist. A fortuitous combination of original vision, innate talent, spunky character, and long life, Moses is known for her landscapes that depict nostalgic views of country life. In this article, the author describes an art activity she introduced to her students in which they are encouraged to create their own designs inspired by the paintings of Grandma Moses. Designed for grades five and six, this activity incorporates art history, rules of composition, watercolor techniques, and basic critique methods. (Contains 1 online resource.)
