dc.description.abstract This curriculum is designed for upper elementary school students (grades 5/6). Designed as four units, the curriculum explores several ways Abstract Expressionism took shape and form during the 1950's. By engaging themselves in the world of the Abstract Expressionist painters, students will better understand change in the world of art as well as in their own artistic and personal growth.Each unit is comprised of four lessons, one each in the content areas of History, Aesthetics, Criticism, and Production.In each lesson, students will apply critical thinking and problem solving skills in both cooperative and individual active learning tasks. A continuous reflective journal will assist students in the structuring and communication of their ideas into words.At the end of the unit, students create two self-directed artworks and an artist's statement, reflecting their gathered understanding of this vital period of Art History.
