Art Prints

Dear Fellow Home Educators,

GWCHE has at your disposal a wonderful resource procured from the National Endowment for the Humanities, entitled Picturing America. In this collection are works by American artists of American subject matter presented in large (approximately 30” x 42”), folio-sized, laminated, reproductions of forty famous works of art covering early Americana to Modern artistic periods. This makes a great unit study, or can be used to enrich your American History curriculum. From the Web site it is described as follows:

The nation’s artistic heritage----our paintings, sculpture, architecture, fine crafts, and photography---offers unique insights into the character, ideals, and aspirations of our country.

Picturing America, a far-reaching new program from the National Endowment for the Humanities in cooperation with the American Library Association, brings this vital heritage to all Americans.

By bringing high-quality reproductions of notable American art into public and private schools, libraries, and communities, Picturing America gives participants the opportunity to learn about our nation’s history and culture in a fresh and engaging way. The program uses art as a catalyst for the study of America---and the cultural, political and historical threads woven into our nation’s fabric over time.

Collectively, the masterpieces in Picturing America, used in conjunction with the Teacher’s Resource Book and program Web site, help students experience the humanity of history and enhance the teaching and understanding of America’s past.
