Historical, Culturally Diverse, Standards-Based Art Lessons to Inspire Young Artists

About the Artist

Faith Ringgold (1930-)
Ringgold created a beautiful combination of quilting and painting in striking works of art.  Her African-American heritage inspires visual story telling in her colorful masterpieces.  Student artists use cut-paper quilt designs combined with oil pastel pictures of a favorite memory to imitate her style.
