We will explore Romare Bearden’s art and the way he represented his ethnic identity. Students will learn the art of collage by first creating a striking bird collage to emphasize contrast, then depicting a realism scene of their choice. Emphasis will be placed on planning, design, & placement. We will explore color, mixed media, texture, overlap, cubism, realism & more.
