1st & 2nd Meet Romare Bearden

Black History Month means focusing on a black artist, both 1st and 2nd grades learned about one of my favorite artist from the Harlem Renaissance, Romare Bearden! 

He looked at several examples of his work, and discussed what the word collage meant. Then they got to work! 

1st grade had to build a person, they had to make sure to use different pictures for every single feature! Took a while, but they got it!  1st grade college

2nd grade used paper scraps to build their neighborhoods. We focused heavily on spacial words like, background, middle ground and foreground.
