Animals in Art - January 14th 2013

In this lively 30-minute videoconference Mrs. Everette's 1st graders were introduced to real and imaginary animals found in sculpture and paintings at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Students learned why animals are important to different cultures, and how artists capture the appearance and behavior of these animals. As a extension to this event, student brainstorm to create their own griffin-like animals using CoreFX creativity program in the computer lab.
