In this virtual workshop designed for 4th-6th graders, we will explore works by Jacob Lawrence and Benny Andrews, artists who depict historical journeys in American history. Inspired by the theme and style of these artworks, we will create a portrait project that expresses our personal journeys and the values we carry with us in our hearts and minds. Students will discover creative approaches to portraiture and book-making.
