Art to Go Programs: Middle School
Materials and Techniques of the Artist
This lesson describes the process for making color woodblock prints, for casting bronze, for blowing glass, cloisonne, and working with faience. As the processes are very complex, this is not recommended for very young audiences.
Problem Solving: What in the World?
This is an extremely interactive lesson where students are prompted to answer questions about art objects, such as "What is it made of? What does the design reveal about the culture that made it? How do you think it was used?" This encourages them to analyze the art objects and learn about the cultures that made them.
