Some Call It Stone: Teaching Abstract Sculpture
Asher, Rikki
Teaching Artist Journal, v2 n3 p168-172 2004
Abstract visual art is not for everybody. Some people find it threatening, uncomfortable, and often, inaccessible. Understandably, this can result in a lack of attention paid to nonrepresentational works of art in the visual arts curriculum. This article describes an experiential, hands-on, field trip that sought to demystify abstract sculpture, as well as help teachers appreciate this artistic style from a more informed point of view. Student art teachers find ways to connect to abstract sculpture, and ways to enhance their classroom instruction through hands-on, bodies-on, activities. (Contains 5 endnotes.)
