Before that though, let’s recap the month. Here’s what’s happened in the Resource Library in June!

New Lessons this Month

Japanese Printmaking

As promised, we’re adding more elementary resources to the library. In this lesson, students look at Japanese prints from Katsushika Hokusai. Students inspect, discuss, and categorize images from his series of Thirty-Six Views of Mt. Fuji. Students then dive in to create their own print series that relates back to something they love.

Wassily Kandinsky

In this lesson, students explore Kandinsky’s artwork using their senses, compare and contrast his artworks, interpret the elements of art used, create an non-objective abstract art piece, and evaluate their work.

Vincent Van Gogh

In this lesson, students identify the style and importance of artworks by Vincent Van Gogh and analyze art using the four steps of art criticism. They explore a variety of materials, tools, and skills to create a work of art, then discuss and reflect choices made in creating their artwork.
