We “Art” the World / Nous Sommes le Monde

Schedule time after the Museum tour for students to self-guide so that they can take pictures of works of art in the galleries. Students will then use Animoto to create a visual display of various works that represent their interpretation of world art. Have them include title and conclusion slides that reflect their thoughts on world art and communities.

Through this presentation, students should explain what art can mean to a community. They should keep design in mind when selecting various works of art in the Museum to visually represent and construct their ideas around the theme of world communities. Students should arrange the order, music, and words to create a meaningful presentation that evokes emotion.
