School: Duke Ellington School, New York, NY
Planned By: Donna Lennon
Original Author: Donna Lennon, New York
Using a painting entitled Man In The Cross Roads, by Diego Rivera (Mexican), students will be given some information about the artist and shown how he uses four characteristics of form in his artwork (i.e. sphere, cube, cone, and cylinder). Students will be encouraged to look at how the artist shows aspects of his nationality in his artwork and how he shows his relationship to class ((Choosing Appropriate Materials & Teaching And Learning About Cultures And Religions).

Note: Notes regarding this discussion would be written on chart paper to be used as a resource for independent/group practice.
