used with children ages 5 and older. However, this lesson can be easily adapted to
work with individuals of all ages as a way of identifying and expressing emotions.
Participants will gain an understanding of how much of a role emotion plays in
art-making as they create paintings based on feelings.

Aboriginal Hand Print
(art + history; art + social studies)
"One old man in Arnhem Land remembered being carried as a child on his father's shoulders as his father climbed up a log leaning against a rock wall. His father then sprayed his hand with red ochre against the rock, leaving a stencil he could still recognize many years later. The main function of the stencils was to record people's presence and association with a site." — Aboriginal Art Online

The stenciled hand print and aboriginal style drawings help children to relate to the man from the Australian Aboriginal Culture stated above, while helping them to understand the use of line in art. A black paper with white splattered paint was used, but white paper with red (ochre) splattered paint would make a nice impression also. Construction paper crayons make bright, bold, linear designs around the hand stencil.

Activate Activism: Creating Our Mural, Part One
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

Making art together is one of the most important ways students can engage in a collaborative process, and talk about the messages and methods they believe in. Art takes time and process. Once children have had a chance to look at different symbols and think about the importance of technique, colors, shapes, and styles, it is time with each other and their art materials that will really allow them to express themselves, finding their voices as artists and activists simultaneously.

As students move forward with work on their activist murals, it will be important for them to think about managing their time and materials. It will also be important for them to remind themselves and each other of their messages and ultimate goals. Continuing work on an ongoing project can be challenging for some children, but it is an important part of developing an identity as someone who does good and important work. Make sure you show respect for the challenging aspects of this activity as your students move ahead with their mural.

Ahmet Öğüt "Across the Slope" Interpretation Pack
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

This SALT Interpretation Pack has been designed as a resource for educators and students as they explore the themes of the Ahmet Öğüt "Across the Slope" exhibition at SALT Beyoğlu in Istanbul, Turkey. Designed for use in high school classrooms, its contents include activities, multimedia resources, terminology and opportunities for discussion. Educators are encouraged to adapt, shape and build upon these materials to best meet the needs of their students and teaching curricula.

"Across the Slope" was first exhibited at Centre d’Art Santa Mònica, Barcelona, in 2008. An installation of a modified Seat 131 (the Fiat 131 Mirafiori model produced in Spain) hovering over a man-made slope, "Across the Slope" responds to the dream of an emerging working class. When, in the 1970s, Fiat began licensing automobile production to manufacturers in Turkey, Spain and Morocco, car prices in these countries dropped. Cars were no longer luxury items. They became affordable consumer products—and symbols of a “modern,” Western lifestyle. Though modification of the Fiat was common, as Öğüt demonstrates, no matter how advanced or decorative the modifications, a car’s capacity remains the same: “A slope is always a slope, and it is always possible for a car to get stuck on one.”

Ahmet Öğüt "Yokuş Boyunca" Yorumlama Rehberi
Read the Fine Print
Rating
3.0 stars

SALT Beyoğlu’nda düzenlenen “Yokuş Boyunca” sergisindeki temaları açıklayan bu Yorumlama Rehberi, eğitimciler ve lise öğrencileri için bir kaynakça olarak hazırlanmıştır. Eğitimcilerin, rehberin içeriğindeki aktiviteler, multimedya kaynakları, terminoloji ve tartışma olanaklarını öğrencilerinin ihtiyaçlarına en iyi cevap verecek şekilde düzenleyerek müfredatlarına uyarlamalarını öneririz.

“Yokuş Boyunca” ilk olarak 2008 yılında, Barselona’daki Centre d’Art Santa Mònica’da [Santa Mònica Sanat Merkezi] sergilenmiştir. Sergi alanında oluşturulmuş bir yokuşta kalmış modifiye bir Seat 131 (İspanya’da üretilmiş Fiat 131 Mirafiori modeli) enstalasyonu olan “Yokuş Boyunca,” gelişmekte olan orta sınıfın mütevazı hayallerine gönderme yapmaktadır.

Fiat’ın 1970’lerde Türkiye, İspanya ve Fas’taki imalatçılara otomobil üretim ruhsatı vermeye başlamasıyla bu ülkelerdeki araba fiyatları düşer. Araba artık bir lüks olmaktan çıkar; bütçeye uygun bir tüketim ürünü ve “modern”, Batılı yaşam tarzının bir simgesi haline gelir. Fiat’ın modifikasyonu yaygındır; ancak Öğüt’ün “Yokuş Boyunca”’da gösterdiği gibi, modifikasyonlar ne denli gelişmiş ya da dekoratif olursa olsun, bir arabanın kapasitesi hep aynı kalır: “Yokuş hep yokuştur ve bir arabanın bir yokuşta kalakalması her zaman mümkündür.”

Arabesque: Where Art Meets Mathematics

Rating
0.0 stars

The main objective of this lesson is to illustrate an important application of mathematics in practical life -- namely in art. Most of the pictures selected for this lesson are visible on the walls of Al-Hambra – Granada (Spain), which is one of the most important landmarks in the Islamic civilization. There are three educational goals for this lesson: (1) establishing the concept of isometries; (2) giving real-life examples of groups; (3) demonstrating the importance of matrices and their applications. As background for this lesson, students just need some familiarity with the concept of a group and a limited knowledge about matrices and the inverse of a non-singular matrix.

This course is an exploration of visual art forms and their cultural connections for the student with little experience in the visual arts. It includes a brief study of art history and in depth studies of the elements, media, and methods used in creative processes and thought. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to: interpret examples of visual art using a five-step critical process that includes description, analysis, context, meaning, and judgment; identify and describe the elements and principles of art; use analytical skills to connect formal attributes of art with their meaning and expression; explain the role and effect of the visual arts in societies, history, and other world cultures; articulate the political, social, cultural, and aesthetic themes and issues that artists examine in their work; identify the processes and materials involved in art and architectural production; utilize information to locate, evaluate, and communicate information about visual art in its various forms. Note that this course is an alternative to the Saylor FoundationĺÎĺ_ĺĚĺ_s ARTH101A and has been developed through a partnership with the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges; the Saylor Foundation has modified some WSBCTC materials. This free course may be completed online at any time. (Art History 101B)

This lesson could be done with most adults and older kids. It is especially good for
elderly women, as many of them have fond memories of sewing and fabric crafts,
yet they can no longer do those crafts due to vision or fine motor impairments.
This project allows them to make something beautiful with fabric that doesn’t
involve any sewing.
