Students will touch upon many of State of Connecticut Content Standards for the Visual Arts. Below is a list of the standards that I feel are most apparent in this unit.
Content Standard 1: Media Students will select media, techniques and processes to communicate ideas, reflect on their choices and analyze what makes them effective
Content Standard 2: Elements and Principles Students will recognize and reflect on the effects of arranging visual characteristics in their own and others' work
Content Standard 4: History and Culture Students will know and compare the characteristics and purposes of works of art representing carious cultures, historical periods and artists
Content Standard 5: Analysis, Interpretation and Evaluation Students will compare a variety of individual responses to, and interpretations of, their own works and those from various eras and cultures
Content Standard 6: Connections Students will describe ways in which the principles and subject matter of the visual arts and other disciplines taught in school are interrelated
