Explore Post-Impressionism by using communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking skills. Walk in the footsteps of artists as you tour the streets of Paris through the lens of photographer Charles Marville's first major exhibition in the United States, Charles Marville: Photographer of Paris. Use mathematical process standards to engage in problem solving. Synthesize art processes while incorporating figurative language via process writing, knowledge of matter and energy, and application of map skills.
