I lived in Alaska for seven years and I loved the native art. If your looking for an art lesson that teaches about America's native art and culture than you'll love this simple art lesson. This art lesson teaches kids about Alaska native art. I made you a video to guide your kids /students on how to draw a fish and than I encourage kids to be creative as they design their fish inspired by Alaskan native art.
Here are some really cool facts about Alaska natives to start your kids/students out with!
The Raven is an Alaska native story that introduces the art "style" of the Alaska natives. I love to read this to my students/kids before I start the following art project.
