Description

This art history workbook teaches students about the artist Norman Rockwell using the Discipline-Based Art Education model. Students learn about Rockwell and his illustrations for the Saturday Evening Post through reading and watching videos of the artist, art analysis sheets, coloring sheets, and reflections on the way he used his illustrations to comment on American life.

Students will learn about the Principle of Emphasis and the Hierarchy of Design, then plan their magazine cover based on those principles. The final project has students create a historical event magazine cover digitally using Google Drawings. A full demonstration video on how to use Google Drawings is included in the lesson.

Worksheets can be used as sub lessons, as enrichment to your art lessons, or as min-lessons on their own. An essential for any art classroom.
