Our second graders had a great time learning facts about George Washington as we created a portrait of him inspired by the art of Gilbert Stuart. View their artwork on our gallery here. I infused my art instruction with technology including lesson delivery, art exploration, art production, digital art, and a class video. Take a quick look below at what I'm talking about and check out the other posts for more details.
This post is a continuation of my Studying George with Art and Tech post where I first introduced the custom photo booth effect that allowed our second grade students to speak as George Washington through the artwork of Gilbert Stuart. View it here.
Now we can see the short video of the facts about George Washington they created.
Click on the images below to explore the sources we used on our fact finding journey. Disclaimer: The last one, Happy President's Day, is a Fugleflick. It may need a fact check.
My second graders are beginning a portrait painting of George Washington based on the work of Gilbert Stuart.
We began this lesson with a pre-test sketch (see example below) while listening and watching Mike Venezia's animated DVD video on George Washington.
They collected facts from the video and shared them one at a time through our George Washington Custom Photo Booth effect. Learn how to make effects like this from my earlier post.
We plan on making paintings like the ones students made in the past (see here or below)
