Islamic Art; Exploring the Visual Arts of the Middle East

The intent of this unit is to demonstrate some of the traditional arts of the Middle East. Extensive background information on the religion, culture, and nature of Islamic art found throughout the Middle East is provided. Each of the four lessons focuses on a different type of art commonly found throughout the region: carpet weaving, metal work, calligraphy, and painting. Hands on projects can be adapted to any classroom level, but are specifically geared towards those in the fifth through eighth grades.
