The 5th grade class watched a PowerPoint presentation of folk art by American folk artists. Many of the artists were self-taught artists who wanted to tell a story, through pictures, about specific events depicting life in rural areas. Calendars with pictures of American folk art are also useful with this project. The directions for this project, “American Folk Art,” can be found in the 5th Grade Projects Gallery in the sidebar.
Happy New Year, and congratulations! I wanted to let you know that you made it onto our list of The Top 100 Kids' Craft Ideas of 2014.
