Title: Analyzing deaf artists' artworks: a curriculum for middle school students
Author: Murray, Cheryl
Abstract: This thesis presents a rich context of art information for interpreting artworks of deaf artists. Over the past decade, many artworks have been created by deaf artists. The purpose is to help deaf/hearing children learn about deaf artists and develop critical thinking in a mainstream school. The art curriculum will be presented in Power Point so administrators/educators can have a way to display the art to the students. The background describes how each deaf artist expressed her/his message in their artwork. The curriculum teaches the students how artists use colors, lines shapes, and textures/patterns to express their values and meanings. The curriculum specifically focuses on what Affirmative and Resistance Art is. Students will create their first selfportrait that relates to the art elements that fit their personalities. After they learn Deaf Art, they will draw their second composition to express their view of deafness.
