Global Art at Wingate
This fall, Wingate’s Art teacher, Jason Basden created and taught a well-developed unit that incorporated globalization. Mr. Basden taught his second grade classes an ongoing series of lessons that focused on depth perception in two-dimensional artwork. Part of the unit focused on the seascapes of Japan. The unit was taught over the course of two weeks. Mr. Basden stated that the students enjoyed the different processes, which included drawing, painting, and collage techniques. He also stated, “I am proud of the success in the pieces created by the students, as well as their ability to discuss the concepts we addressed in class.” Wingate is lucky to have such creativity on our staff!
