Lesson Fifteen Integrated Concepts Language Arts: setting, characters, details, fact and fiction, inference, compare and contrast, oral language Social Studies: location, occupations, agriculture, family Visual Art: painting, printmaking
Take a few minutes and examine this painting carefully. Try to notice all the parts of the painting.
Explain what you see in the painting. What is visible in the setting? Can you identify the structures, the plants and any other elements? Describe the characters.
Can you explain what is happening here? Is there any evidence to tell you when this scene takes place? Are there clues to the location of this scene? Have you ever been in a place like this? Where and when?
Here is a different type of artwork. It is not a painting, it is a print. The artist cut away the white parts and left the black sections. He spread ink on the carved plate and pressed paper onto the wet ink to make the image.
This print has a setting, characters, structures, and other objects just as the painting does. Take a minute and look carefully at this print. Can you identify the location? How would you describe the Characters? Are there tools or other objects you can recognize? What event is happening here? Support your answer.
If we compare and contrast the painting and the print, we can see that there are similarities and differences. What do you notice about: the characters; what are they doing, how they are dressed? the buildings; what are they made of? the ground, the plants, the sky? color, texture, detail, space, light and shadow?
These people are working on a farm. They are “tying” tobacco. Do you imagine these people own the farm or are they workers who are paid to work there? How do you imagine they feel about the work they are doing? Do you imagine they are talking or singing? Tell why.
What about these workers? Are they working for themselves or working for someone else? Do you think they are friends or relatives or are they strangers? Support your answers. What kind of mood are they in? Are they laughing and talking or are they quiet? What makes you think that?
If you wanted to make a painting or a print about people working together, what would you show the people doing? Would they be enjoying their work or would they be tired and unhappy? What kinds of work do people often enjoy doing? What kinds of work do people often say they dislike? What kind of work would you like to do?
