"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!


-Melissa Mursch- Zines & bookbinding

-Tania Espinoza Bonilla- Fibers- coiled coasters and plushy hearts for Valentines!

-Chris Davis-Benevides- Peruvian inspired ceramics! (my personal favorite!)

Air dry pinch pots and "guardians"

-Ethan Kastner and Kelsey Parks- Yours Truly Studio---> Ceramics studio tour!

surface design practice

-Maddie Nicholson- Stippling/charcoal drawings

-Rachel Heimer- Color blocking with digital art

-Amanda Izquierdo-Architecture-building tiny model houses with sucker/popsicle sticks

(8th graders focusing on what kind of future they want to build for themselves)
