Art Movements: Modern Art through the African American Lens

Travel through time to reposition the racial lens and experience the colorful vibrancy of modern art movements across the globe from the 1860s to present, practicing research methods and creating your own response to a selected art style.


Students will learn to research and identify forms of visual arts from many cultures, eras, and locations. They will analyze and apply specific styles for each movement as they create their own versions of art in different mediums: painting, collage, drawing, etc.  Primarily based on art standards, this class will also include interpretation, reflection and writing, and a final project or exhibit. 

During COVID, we are arranging for a basic art package for students as needed. If your student needs one, please email The Know and register by September 23. For immediate inquiries contact Meg Hunnewell at 917-710-0050.
