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.

It is so helpful to have so many resources on one website. Sources that used to take hours of hunting on line now take little time to locate. In the event of a change of plans or if I need sub plans for the day, my work is done.
