Art of The Great Depression
This is a collection of online art from The Great Depression.Т I made a Power Point with a few of the pieces, and I am going to use them as practice with “extended looking.”Т They will also be a usefulТ introduction to The Great Depression’s issues and themes.Т In addition, I found some background information onТ Thomas Hart Benton (the artist pictured in the work seen here). Ken Burns did a documentary about him through PBS, and they have lesson plans posted on the site as well.Т I thought Kim especially might likeТ the ideas for exploring social activism through the arts.
This is a great post Brandi. PBS has great resources!
