Re-Pinned from Desiree 1) Grant Wood, 1930 2) Regionalism 3) It was an American modern art movement and focused on showing the life of farmers and mainly scenes of rural life. 4) In this painting, Grant Wood used two farmers as the models of the painting and he uses dull colors to represent the hardships of these farmers during that century and to also set the mood of the painting
2nd Graders are studying the life and artwork of the artist Grant Wood. They learned about how his most famous artwork, American Gothic, is continually used in our culture to represent the classic hard working "regular folk" in America at that time. We went on a hunt to find this image in our everyday lives and kids were excited to report that they found this picture in SO MANY places! We then made our own drawings of the American Gothic and wrote about what we saw in this image.
