Franz Marc Discussion for National Standards

Last year I developed a one day lesson at the beginning of a unit on color to knock out several of the Respond and Connect National Visual Arts Standards for 7th grade. I wanted to choose an image with a subject that was familiar to the students in my rural school, but presented in a way they might not be familiar with- many of my students are very concrete in their views on art and prefer realism. Franz Marc was a good choice with the bright colors in his German Expressionist paintings of horses and cows- animals my farm living students see on a daily basis.

We started with a Visual Thinking Strategies style discussion and then moved into questions specifically connecting to the standards. 

You can get the complete lesson plan on The smARTteacher!
