Site in Sight: How Location Shapes Perspectives (9th–12th Grades)

Art has the power to illuminate, inform, and enrich one’s perspective, leading the viewer to analyze, question, and hypothesize. Each person’s point of view is highly subjective and individual. The way a particular artist views an event or an issue is strongly influenced by personal background, lived experiences, place of origin, and choice of medium. The fifteen pieces included in this curriculum entitled “Site in Sight,” are connected by the individual voice of each artist examining his or her unique perspective of a concept, place, time, or idea.

Art of Africa and/or Mesoamerica (7th Grade)

Africa
Africa is a vast continent made up of more than fifty countries with many different climates and types of land: hot savannas, deserts, green rain forests, large river valleys and snow-covered mountains. The Niger, the Nile, and the Congo are Africa’s three major rivers. Africa is inhabited by a greater variety of ethnic groups (or peoples) than any other continent. These groups speak hundreds of languages, practice diverse religions and customs, and—of course—create a wide variety of art.
