Discovering Horace Pippin and the National Gallery of Art

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.
