Mounira Al Solh: Time Document Portraits
Mounira Al Solh's art practice embraces drawing, painting, embroidery, performative gestures, video and video installations. Irony and self-reflectivity are central strategies for her work, which explores feminist issues, tracks patterns of microhistory, is socially engaged, and can be political and escapist all at once.
This elementary art lesson is inspired by Al Solh’s solo exhibition, “I Strongly Believe in Our Right to be Frivolous,” which feature portraits that she created from conversations with Syrian refugees.
The 9-page lesson plan includes: information about the artist, objectives, National Core Arts Standards, materials list, procedure, assessment, and extension, as well as resource links, and artist and teacherexamples for inspiration.
