About This Lesson

Through this lesson plan, students will learn about Romare Bearden's life and why his collages are famous. They will watch two youtube clips, which connect Jazz to his art form, and discuss what influenced him as he did his collages. Students will then make their own Romare collage depicting his famous work, "The Block." Learning objectives, standards, possible adaptations for students with learning disabilities and activity extensions are included as well. This resource can easily be adapted for multiple grades.
