PHILLIPS ARTWORK INSPIRATION: Jacob Lawrence’s The Migration Series
Through this arts-integrated unit, students studied Jacob Lawrence’s Migration Series and used the Feldman’s model to identify how Jacob Lawrence expresses different themes throughout the Migration Series. Students connected to the work by writing their own stories about important events that affected them. Students then expressed their stories through painting.
