Objective

Students will compare two paintings, form a big idea, then identify a creator with a similar style.

Steps

  1. Students begin by simply noticing details in this painting of two women.
  2. Next, they find similarities in the painting of women ironing and this painting of women waiting.
  3. Students then look at four more paintings (all in one file) and create a big idea about Degas' style. Here are the four images as separate files: two dancers, many dancers on stage, a woman ironing, looking at camera, and a woman ironing in the shadows.
  4. Finally, students will consider at least one other creator who matches the big idea they created for Degas. Here's more of Julia flipping that potato.

The registration window closes on October 1st, 2021
