Painting as a Visual Art in Africa
Guided by this module on African culture (food, festivals, the people, visual and performing arts), choose one of the forms of art introduced here to present a project that brings to life the history of Africa as you see it now in one of the current form of the arts. Please use the art of Painting with some interesting African paintings!!
Each student is challenged, driven by African culture (food, festivals, the people, visual and performing arts), to complete a visual project that encapsulates your interests thus far. Some thoughts for presentation are Oral Histories, PowerPoint, Photographic display or YouTube presentation with a narrative. For example: Consider planning and making a meal from one of the regions of Africa that you’ve investigated for guests. Share your journey from your initial investigation to the final meal using one of the online formats suggested. Develop a presentation that is of interest.
To make your content accessible to all of your classmates (including those with visual and hearing impairments), please make sure you write text descriptions for all important images (graphs, charts, infographics, etc) and include closed captions for videos and transcripts for audio presentations. Make sure that you cite all sources properly. If one decides to do a power point, please design it carefully and do not simply copy and paste information into a slide. Make sure if using any of these approaches that the project is visible to all. If narrated make sure that you include text. If using images and or music make sure they are copyright free.
