Art 2016-17

  • Ms. Brooker                                   kbrooker@stamfordct.gov
  • Quarter 4 Jacob Lawrence

    Q4 Essential Question:  

    How do artists create work that communicates feelings about “Social Justice?”

    Students in 6th grade art wrap up the year studying the artwork of African American painter, Jacob Lawrence, and his Migration Series. This timely and complete body of work was painted after he researched in the library to paint species he’d never seen, and places he’d never been to. He also interviewed friends and family who had migrated from the South to hear their stories and create narrative art of their journeys and tales. Infusing his unique abstract style into the geometric and biomorphic paintings which portray the sense of hope, dreams, and also loss - that the migration created in thousands who left the South for their new Northern lives.

  • Q3 Designing a Fantasy Space

    Designing a Fantasy Space Using Math in 6th Grade Art

    In art, students are setting a base budget, researching furnishings, and electronics in catalogs and on the internet to create their ideal room environment. By coordinating this art unit with our math curriculum, the concepts of area, perimeter, length, width, and depth become practical and useful. An additional goal is to make students aware of the planning and finances needed to decorate a home. The importance of education and the resulting increase your income as an adult, is stressed in this unit to help you achieve your fantasy living space someday.
