On Friday, April 5th, Braham first graders enjoyed a dance-intergrated visual art lesson on lines by Teaching Artist, Alison Holland with funding support from the BEPO organization. They tried on “chance dance,”a Merce Cunningham theory of choreography, while modeling movement. Students captured the dancing with “quick sketches” before experimenting with Keith Haring style abstract art focusing on gesture lines and vibrant colors. After their artwork was complete, students had an opportunity to compare and contrast each other’s use of line and color to illustrate their “chance dance” movements.
