This lesson has great cross-curricular potential. Using artist Romare Bearden’s work provides an easy way for you to collaborate with the music teachers at your school. Ask them to talk about the ideas of rhythm and balance in their classrooms and then have students explore these ideas visually in yours. If your students play instruments, this lesson can make a great personal connection as well. If you’re interested, The National Gallery of Art has a fantastic Bearden resource for you!
