The Emergence of Art in Early America

Help your students understand the society and cultural of early America with this lesson based on the collections of the Columbia Museum of Art (CMA).  Contact Joelle Ryan-Cook, at the CMA’s Teacher Resource Center for information on the “Framing America Tour.” This high school lesson allows the class to incorporate art into history and to draw upon creative talents as they recreate some of the artwork they have seen in their own creative projects.
