Gordon Parks' Visions: What Do You See?Gordon Parks' Visions: What Do You See? is an Arts Partners program developed in 2015 with funding from the Ulrich Museum of Art.
What did Gordon Parks see when he took his photographs? Students will be mesmerized by the storytelling of Ms. Jean Pouncil-Burton as she shares stories told in Gordon Parks' photographs. Recreating American life during the pre-Civil Rights era, this interactive and engaging storytelling performance will have your students contemplating civil rights, justice, creativity, originality, devotion, and why Gordon Parks' legacy lives into the 21st century.
While learning about respected artist, author, and native Kansan Gordon Parks, students will experience history and social studies topics related to Gordon Parks and be inspired to think critically about their own lives and experiences.
Artist: Jean Pouncil-Burton
These skills all apply directly to my students' performances on their oral and written IB exams. Storytelling and improvisational speaking are important life skills.
