Check out First Grade's farm paintings! They are studying the Great Depression and Grant Wood, using "American Gothic" as a jumping off point. They are learning about foreground, middle ground, and background, and working on the proper usage of watercolor paints. They are featuring a farm animal and the habitat in which their animal might live. They are making amazing artworks and can tell you all about Grant Wood!
First graders, here are some things to tell your parents:
- Where was Grant Wood born?
- What did he use for art supplies when he was a boy?
- What is the Great Depression?
- How did Grant Wood's art help America?
Other grades: if you bring in a parody of this artwork, I'll give you extra credit.
