How We Express Ourselves

Our Art Walk
We kicked off our unit with an art exhibit.

CENTRAL IDEA: People appreciate the ways in which artists express creativity through visual arts. Lines of Inquiry: *Genres – still life, landscape, portrait, line & shape and ordinary life *Mediums - drawing, painting, collage, construction, printmaking and clay *Famous artists express their creativity through favorite genres and mediums
