Art in Action
Program K: Art Around the World
Students are introduced to art from different times and places by creating Persian miniatures, Japanese prints, Native American Kachina masks, and Byzantine mosaics. Students learn to draw basic shapes, patterns, faces, and landscapes using tempera paint, oil pastels, chalk pastels, and collage materials. Other projects include sunflower paintings inspired by Vincent van Gogh, weavings in the style of the medieval unicorn tapestries, and collages based on Henri Rousseau’s Jungle Scene.
