Artist of the Week

In addition to the artists discussed in class at the beginning of each new lesson, the high schoolers were introduced to one new artist a week. Here are a few of the artists discussed:

Marian Bantjes Worksheet

Walter Martin and Paloma Muñoz Worksheet

Judith Scott Worksheet

  1. I like the idea of introducing an artist of the week. I think I will use this idea for my students next semester, Thanks!!!

  2. So what do you exactly when introducing a new artist each week? Do you just discuss the artist or do you also do a project based on their work?

    • It depended on the week. Usually I would introduce the artist and then we would do a journal entry on him/her and the similar medium of art. This would be separate from the main art project we were working on. However, you could also use your artist introduction to introduce a new topic/art project. 🙂
