Abstract Expressionism was a movement in American painting that emerged following World War II. The work of three well-known abstract expressionists will be examined as participants develop skills in analyzing and understanding abstract works of art.
Lessons based on the work of each artist are included that make connections to measurement, estimation, number concepts, and coordinate plane. Differentiation across readiness and grade levels is addressed.
Intended Audience: K-6th grade
