Third grade students learned about the art of Chicago in class this year. For their art show pieces, they created work inspired by jazz and blues music. We learned about the Chicago Black Renaissance that was going on during the time of the more well-known Harlem Renaissance. They looked at work by Jacob Lawrence, Romare Bearden and Archibald Motley. They read The Weary Blues by Langston Hughes and painted original paintings illustrating these themes.
