Teaching Tips

Positives

  • There are so many wonderful artist galleries, and each one is unique.

Additional Prerequisites

  • There are five icons for exploring the artist galleries: delve, learn, interpret, reflect, and act. The icons help guide you as you scroll through each artist gallery.
  • Once you click into an artist gallery, there are left and right arrows in the top right to help you navigate through the galleries.
  • If you check any of the pledge boxes at the bottom of an artist gallery under "Featured Actions," you can share that pledge to Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr.

Differentiation

  • Art students could choose one artist to study. Students could research the artist's motivation and background and analyze one of their pieces.
  • This resource could be used for social-emotional learning by focusing on the emotions represented in and evoked by the artwork.
  • Art students could gather textile waste to create works of art in the style of Guerra de la Paz.
  • Your students could explore the gallery by taking one of five featured tours.
  • Students can also explore the 2015 exhibition of the same name.
Scientist Notes
These galleries identify key environmental problems arising from oil exploration and resource exploitation and present a plan for sustainable resource management. This is recommended for teaching.
