Places Investigating Places of Personal Significance
People gain insights into meanings of artworks by engaging in the process of art criticism.
1. Look at all of the artworks in the following slides.
2. Choose two to respond to and use the guide on your worksheet to direct your response
Through art-making, people make meaning by investigating and developing awareness of perceptions, knowledge, and experiences.
Make an artwork about a place that has importance to you. Make connections by investigating why this place has significance and how you will represent that visually.
You will draw, collage, and write and create about a place of your choice.
Bring in pictures, ideas, materials, objects to help you connect and make meaning.
Your journal will be used to help you with your project
You will draw and then paint your place. You can use tempera guache or watercolor paint. You can choose your own style and experiment
Objects, artifacts, and artworks collected, preserved, or presented either by artists, museums, or other venues communicate meaning and a record of social, cultural, and political experiences resulting in the cultivating of appreciation and understanding.
You will display your Place or Identity project in December. You can choose your best work or choose to display both.
