Mapping the Civil Rights Movement: A Mixed Media Encounter with Living History
We enjoyed making art with art teachers at the National Art Education Association – Annual Convention – 2023!
In the workshop we invited participants to explore a key civil rights movement from their hometown or state, and introduced a series of mixed media techniques.
We borrowed inspiration from artists: Mark Bradford, Lordy Rodriguez, and Damian and Delaine Le Bas.
Read on to see the resulting artwork, and to see a copy of our presentation, which provides an overview of how to introduce this unit to students.
