From Landscapes to Land Art: A Docent’s Guide to the Portrayal of Nature in Art
Students will select a work of art and analyze what the artist’s portrayal of nature tells us about his or her view of the natural world. In Part 1, students will examine the image and create a word bank describing the visual elements, mood, and media found in the image. In Part 2, each student will use his or her word bank and the prompts to write a script for a docent or guide, to use when describing the work of art and the artist’s portrayal of nature to visitors.
