1 Researching the Great Masters and Their Works A culminating project cooperatively planned by Shari Martin and Shannon Libke E122.7 Teaching Materials from the Stewart Resources Centre

2 Table of Contents Introduction...1 Foundational Objectives...1 Data Sheets...2 Reprinted/posted with permission from The Medium Vol. 39 (1) Spring 1999:

3 Introduction Arts Education was selected as the focus for this resource-based unit after both teachers identified it as a subject they wanted to revisit. Along with renewing their familiarity with the Arts Education curriculum, they began looking for ways to integrate resource-based learning and technology. The resulting unit surprised and surpassed the expectations of their planning session. This carried into the classroom, where students have shown a keen interest in learning about art and artists. Best of all, some students uncovered a talent and creativity for art of which they had been previously unaware. The Visual Art curriculum for grade six deals with the three components used in all Arts Education courses: cultural/historical, critical/responsive and creative/productive. This unit puts most of the focus on the cultural/historical component through the study of an artist s life and the critical/responsive component where students study the work of the artist in a systematic way. Foundational Objectives 1. Examine sources of ideas and make connections between ideas and visual expression. 2. Develop an understanding of the elements and principles of art and design and learn to apply these to their expressions and responses to works of art. 3. Examine the functions of visual art and examine ways it mirrors and influences individuals, societies and cultures, past and present. 4. Examine the work of various artists.. Develop critical thought and learn to support their interpretations and opinions when responding to art. Source: Arts Education : A Curriculum Guide for Grade 6. Saskatchewan Education (1994) pp Resources about the artists were found in a wide variety of print and non-print sources. Several artists are featured on web pages on the Internet. General encyclopedia and books in the art section of the library provided much information. The time needed for this unit varied from six to eight class periods. The final presentations were excellent. 1
