I recently purchased a book about Horace Pippin by Jen Bryant. The book is A Splash of Red. It's a nice little biographical book chronicling his discovery of a love for creating art and how it carried through his life. I was not terribly familiar with Pippin so started googling for more information. I discovered a wonderful website, NGA Classroom. I found a terrific biography, photos of his work as well as lesson and connections. I've added a permanent link on the right side of this blog. RIght now I think I will approach this lesson with a focus on folk art and reading a picture. I am eager to introduce students to a new artist as well.
