Classroom Considerations

  • Alas, while student samples and works by Kirkland are included in the packet, the instructor will need to collect from the Internet images produced by other artists
Pros

  • The 19-slide PowerPoint presentation includes images of Kirkland's paintings, a brief biography, student samples, and a recreated image of Kirkland's painting straps
  • The plan is richly detailed and includes links to related resources
Cons

  • No samples of aboriginal dot art are included in the packet
