Teacher Resources

Native American Ledger Art

These resources are designed to help teachers integrate learning at the museum and through the visual arts into the classroom curriculum.

Learning to Look

Created by the Hood Museum of Art, Learning to Look is an approach designed to help viewers look carefully and think critically about any work of art.

This resource provides a full-screen image of a contemporary ledger drawing by artist Dwayne Wilcox and a nineteenth-century ledger drawing, along with guidelines to help you lead a discussion about it with your students. It will introduce you and your students to the five steps involved in exploring a work of art: careful observation, analysis, research, interpretation, and critique. Workshops for teachers on the Learning to Look technique are offered at the Hood Museum of Art periodically throughout the year.

Learn More!

This annotated list of resources will help you and your students to learn more about Native American ledger drawing as well as some cultural and historical context.

 

Please visit the Hood Museum of Art to see a wide range of original works of art from around the world. There is no charge for admission and the museum is open every day of the week except Monday. Free tours for K-12 school groups as well as programs for adults, teens, and families are available. Visit the museum's web site to learn more.
