Through a Child’s Eyes: Down on the Farm

Looking closely at works of art from the Cincinnati Art Museum’s collection, students will gain a better understanding of celebrations within Native American cultures. Students will also examine Native American symbols and demonstrate their understanding of symbolism as they create their own pendant necklaces.
Shapes, lines, and angles, oh my! Students will discover how artists incorporate geometry into their compositions as they examine works of art from the Cincinnati Art Museum’s collection. After discussing how math is used in art, students will create their own MATHterpieces.
The Natural World
The natural world has long been a source of inspiration for artists. As they look at examples of landscapes from the Cincinnati Art Museum’s collection, students will discuss weather, seasons, and artistic styles: realism and abstraction. Students will create their own landscapes inspired by their discussion and the two mentioned styles.
Tons Of Traditions
Through careful examination of works of art from the Cincinnati Art Museum’s collection, students will discuss the traditions of cultures around the world. As a hands-on component, students will draw upon their new understandings as they create their own masks inspired by African traditions.
