Teaching Art with Cultural Diversity

  1. 1. Teaching with Cultural Diversity

  15. 15. One approach is to start with the cultures represented in your school and community. Another is to start with a theme or big idea and show how it has been expressed in art from many cultures and times. Try to include visual culture and both contemporary and historic artworks. Know what you are talking about. How to Get Started
  16. 16. Ernest Boyer’s Human Commonalities All of us: • experience the life cycles. • work. • use symbols. • know time and place. • search for a larger purpose. • have an aesthetic response. • seek social bonding. • have a connection to nature.
  17. 17. The Symbol of the Hand What can it mean?
  18. 18. How to Get Started One approach is to start with the cultures represented in your school and community. Come up with a theme or big idea. This can be as simple as identity, community, story, nature, ecology, cycles, etc. Keep concepts simple. Consider how that idea is expressed in art. Look for many art examples from different times, places, and cultures that will appeal to students. Try to include visual culture and both contemporary and historic artworks. Think about how you will engage your students. How can you present each lesson in an interesting way? Sharing a book, showing and discussing an Animoto video, PowerPoint, or Prezi?
