Lesson One

Common Core Standard: Re:7.2.3a

The image below is a "Story Quilt" by Faith Ringgold.

What do you notice about this artwork? What is the story being told here, in your opinion?

EXTENSION: *If you have art supplies and some extra time* What's a personal story of yours that you could draw? 

Also create a "border" for your drawing using geometric patterns, like triangle and squares. You could even cut shapes out of colored paper!


Lesson Two

Common Core Standard: Re:7.1.3a

Look at the two images below:

What material do you think the artist used? What tools did they use? 


Lesson Three

Common Core Standard: Cr:1.2.3

We're visiting Africa this week! Create your version of an African mask, inspired by the examples below. Use whatever materials you can find in and around your house. For example: egg cartons, cardboard boxes, milk jugs, bottle caps, shells, rocks, toothpicks, q-tips, sponges, twigs, etc. Think about what facial features you want on your mask (like eyes, nose, mouth), will you add hair? What will your hair be made out of?

* If you don't have many supplies, don't fear - it doesn't have to be very complex! You can also draw a picture of your mask instead.
