By combining the art and reading classes , we will explore poetry on three levels; the written word, the musical lyric and finally artistic concrete poetry. The students will create these visual poems as a group and will then present and display their concrete poetry art.The art and reading classes will join for this lesson.
The students will gain an appreciation of poetry and that it comes in many forms. Students will demonstrate an understanding of poetic image by creating the final concrete poetry drawing.
Poetry books, lyrics and examples of concrete poetry. Paper,color pencils, watercolors, and fine tip markers will be used for the final poetry product.
By combining reading and art we emphasize that core curriculum plays an important role in art classes.by
