Although movies are sometimes cast in a bad light by administrators and parents, we know that a good movie can help bring art to life. If you like to use occasional movies in your high school classroom, then this AOE List is for you! Thanks to all of our amazing FB fans that helped us put the list together.
NOTE: Depending on your comfort level, the maturity of your students, and your school’s policies, some language and/or scenes from the movies below may not be appropriate for your classroom. ALWAYS preview movies in their entirety before showing them to your students.
Showing a movie like those listed above is a great way to hook your kids when talking about art history. But, it isn’t the only way. If you’re looking for more engaging ways to bring art history into your classroom, be sure to take a peek at the Implementing Art History in the Secondary Art Room PRO Learning Pack. You’ll learn how to introduce compelling and relevant artists to your students and gain strategies to help your students interact in meaningful ways with the art they see in your classroom.
We hope this list is a useful reference tool for you. If you are short on time in your classroom, one FB fan had a great tip to search through the “Special Features” sections of DVDs for inspiring and informative “behind the scenes” information to show instead. Genius!
What movies would you add to this list?
Which of these have you used in your classroom?
