Lesson Plans

The Foundation is in the process of creating study guides and resources for this section, and welcomes contributions from educators who have included works by self-taught and outsider artists in their classrooms.


Some wonderful lesson plans coordinated by museums include:

How Can I Get an Idea Like That? A Student Guide to the Hemphill Folk Art Collection (from the Smithsonian American Art Museum)

Folk Art Revealed (from the American Folk Art Museum)

In the Realms of Henry Darger (from the American Folk Art Museum)

Bill Traylor Teacher Resources (from the High Museum of Art)
