Why Lesson Planet?
Color, light and shadow, the placement and size of objects. These are some of the tools artists used to tell their stories. Model for learners how to read a painting by closely examining these features. The richly detailed packet includes plans and activities for all grade levels.
- Ask viewers to change an element of the painting and then to consider how the change alters the story told by the work
- Participants are asked to create a three-panel storyboard that shows what happened before and/or after the events pictured
- The image, discussion questions that focus the viewer's attention, and worksheets are included in the packet
- Graphics & Images
