African American Art

Here's another great website to help your students celebrate Black History Month. This site showcases one hundred years of African American art achievement . Artwork ranges chronologically from the Civil War era to the Harlem Renaissance, from civil rights struggles to the contemporary period. A click on a work of art produces notes about the author and his work. Art Access provides lesson plans for grades 6 through 12 and activities for families.
