Learning to Look, Looking to Learn - Sunday Morning

Jerome Myers' depiction of the urban landscape in "Sunday Morning" is the focus of a series of activities that asks viewers to examine how an artist uses the elements of a painting to tell a story. The resource packet includes an image of the painting, as well as separate worksheets that focus attention on Myers's colors, lines, balance and composition, and sensory appeals.
