The Bearden Foundation has many other resources to explore Romare Bearden's work.   

First and second grade artists made collages inspired by Bearden's work. We started by painting colorful backgrounds and line-drawing musical instruments. We listened to Jazz while we worked!

Students photographed their work. While this skill still requires some work, it helps meet the Presentation part of the National Art Standards.
