"What's Up Milwaukee?!" Unit
This unit focuses on all of the amazing artist resources Milwaukee has to offer. Through observing interviews with the artists, students will be able to not only learn a new skill/medium, but also learn more about Milwaukee culture through these amazing artists.
In the process of creating this lesson, I want to not only share with my students art resources that I'm already familiar with but also discovering new gems hidden within the magic that is Milwaukee!
