Resources for Education

This timeline has been developed by the Albright-Knox Art Gallery's Education department to help educators find lesson plans and other resources to use in their classrooms. It also contains historical milestones that help give context to these resources.

Simonds has created an entirely imaginary civilization, which he calls Little People, complete with its own history, belief system, and way of life.

Bundle Up! Thinking in Three Dimensions

This lesson plan is inspired by an assignment that 2012–2013 Artist-in-Residence Dennis Maher uses with his architectural design students at UB.

Culture Collage

Students will learn about Greek culture and its influence, and create a Jirí Kolár–inspired collage.

Arcangel appropriated imagery from the video game MIG 29 Soviet Fighter to create a work of art that consists of two “new” cartridges.

Mark Bradford’s Mississippi Gottdam

This work references a post-Katrina New Orleans—the organic abstraction recalls waves and uses actual debris from New Orleans's Katrina-torn streets.
