A wonderful way to highlight African-American artists in your classroom is to engage students in a fun yet informative activity. Our new resource entitled "Great African-American Artists Memory Game" will allow students to learn important facts about prominent African-American artists while having fun. The set includes 26 different artists from around the United States who played a major role in the development of visual arts during the 20th century. Much like the old game Concentration, players take turns turning over the cards in order to find matching pairs. While there are three different ways to play the game, teachers can also use the cards as inspiration for a variety of art history lessons. Click on the art resource lessons to find more creative lesson ideas for the month of February. How are you celebrating the accomplishments of great African-Americans in your classroom?
