Artistic Reading

My students need to learn about the world of art even if they are not artistically inclined. This can be helped by reading about art.

My Students

Art is for everyone, but not everyone has artistic ability for drawing. They can still learn about art in detail by reading about it. Since our students need all the reading practice they can get, it would be very useful for me to dedicate one day per week to read about art ideas and genres.

Our students are almost all from disadvantaged circumstances.

We are an inner city school with 98% free and reduced lunch. We are a Title I distinguished school but even though we continue to improve and get recognition for doing so, Federal Title I funds have been cut and there is no money for anything but the absolute essentials. Our students do not come from homes where such a publication is easily afforded or even considered. If they don't get it from school they don't get it at all.

My Project

I just got a sample copy of Scholastic Art in the mail and I am inspired by what the issue offers. It features multiple artists, genres, and elements of art to be learned about within its covers. There is a page for an art-related career, writing prompts, Internet videos of topic-related substance, and a lesson that can be done in step-by-step format. Even students who are not artistically inclined can learn about art as an enrichment to their lives. We need a class subscription of the Scholastic Art magazine.

I plan to use the publication with all of my fourth and fifth grade art students.

They will have to share, but the impact of reaching two hundred fifty students with an English-Language Arts connection to art is inspiring. The upcoming themes for the year include Modernism, Surrealism, Harlem Renaissance. Egyptian art, and contemporary art. All the issues are tied in to the Common Core Standards and include cross-curricular connections.
