Historical Collage Drawings
Billington, Lisa
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v109 n6 p30-31 Feb 2010
Helping students learn how to interpret and analyze imagery is an important skill. With last year's historical election of the first African American president, it was an opportune time to explore where Americans are going as a nation and what kind of future they envision. Middle-school students are eager to give their opinions, but learning to research political, historical, and civil rights issues while asking them to visually communicate their educated perspective was an interesting challenge. In this article, the author describes how her eighth-grade students made historical collage drawings for their art project. (Contains 3 online resources.)
