ARTISTICALLY SERVING: GLOBAL CONNECTIONS


This theme of this nine weeks is service and global connections. Art is rarely made in a vacuum and our environment and experiences shape who we are and the art we make. This is a common among all artists all over the world. By researching artists across the globe, you will see this illustrated and hopefully begin to draw on the work and motivations of others, including it in your own artwork.

In this unit you will

  • Identify international events and their impact on a culture, specifically artists and their community.

  • Identify ways in which these events influence or are manifested in these artists' works.

  • Identify connections you may have with another artist or culture half way around the world.

  • Incorporate your responses to these events and concepts in a personal piece of art work

  • Acquire new information about Fair Trade and its purpose.

  • Synthesize and apply the knowledge from above in the planing and execution of a service-learning event.

  • Create aides that educate others about these events and encourage them to act.

Students will participate in Internet scholarship and Web based activities to gather information about various artists and organizations that support foreign cultures and their traditional handicrafts. Various software programs will be used to complete assignments and enhance learning. In the end your participation in these learning modules should allow you to create a benefit event that merges and applies information gleaned from all the lessons. The culmination of this study will be a World Bazaar and Art Exhibition that you develop and manage at our annual International Festival. Now to begin........
