This would be a gorg painting for my music room, don't you think? Romare Bearden is one of my favorite American artists & my favorite Black artist. He really captured the complexity of African American life, the visual art partner to August Wilson in my opinion!

Love the idea of incorporating art with collages, proportional reasoning. Takes about THREE weeks. Gives students the chance to see the work of an artist who was inspired by music, art, and theater. Students create a place that represents their own live. Make sure that they were creating their own people using parts of photographs. Discourage them from cutting out people and gluing them down and leaving the photos in tact. It forces them to think about the proportions.
