ArtsConnectEd iPad Challenge #4: It's About Choice

This ArtsConnectEd set was created as a way for high school students to dive deeper into understanding an artist's motivation to create. Often, an artwork may be created as a form of response to an impactful event.

In this set students will be asked to reflect on their own personal and cultural experiences as a "jumping off" point to find meaning in a work of art. The study of cultural experiences shaping art making can be a study in and of itself, or this set may be used along with another unit of study.

Teachers are strongly encouraged to use Visual Thinking Strategies as a means of fostering critical thinking and discussion when looking at each artwork.

Theme in life:
we all seek meaning in our lives

Theme in life and art:
art can express shared human experiences or have individual meaning to the artist

Essential inquiry question:
How do personal and cultural experiences influence what an artist creates?
