Anna Mary Robertson Moses

grade 2 work in progress

We analyze the work of Grandma Moses in terms of subject, space, and style.  We work out the rules of simple perspective (size, placement, overlap) and identify examples.

We brainstorm a familiar scene and complete a rough draft.  We begin work on our folk art painting.

  1. I'm embarrassed to say I've never taught about Grandma Moses. I'm sure the kids would LOVE her and maybe I can fit her in next year. I really like your approach to this lesson; lots of thought in it and I'd really love to give something similar a try. Thanks!
