Art 21

Standard

Although I have heard of Art 21 before I have not read the blog before, so here it is.  “Art21 is a nonprofit dedicated to engaging audiences with contemporary visual art, inspiring creative thinking, and educating a new generation about artists working today.” The blog is a virtual meeting place where educators, students, artist and anyone who is interested gather to share ideas, thoughts and expecially art.  While reading through the blog archives I came across this particular post that I absolutlely love.  Not only does this particular post present a timeless piece of art, it also describes how the piece was incorporated into a classroom setting.  Also, the post includes some extremely thought provoking questions that, as an educator, could be used as a springboard to develop some truly inspriring unit plans.  I myself am definetly more of a process oriented artists and teacher so this post was right up my alley.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
