Students learn how artists communicate ideas about culture and historical events through their work. This tour focuses on the culture of Native tribes who lived west of the Mississippi, and the impacts on them as settlers arrived in the West. Use of proper art vocabulary and identification of basic elements of art -line, shape, color and texture are emphasized. Armed with a viewfinder, students look closely for cultural clues in their search for information about Native Americans, pioneers, and immigrants.
Tour duration 90 min.
