As a teacher new to Ohio, this webquest began as a way for me to learn about Ohio Artists. Our Ohio Visual Arts Standards state that students must learn about these artists, yet I had no basic knowledge of them. I was raised in Pennsylvania, received my bachelor's degree from a Pennsylvania college then taught art in Tennessee. I know all about Andy Warhol (from Pennsylvania) and Red Groom (from Tennessee) but I needed to know more about Ohio.
After networking with local art teachers and art museums, I learned that Aminah Robinson is a preeminent artist in the area. I soon realized that this is someone that my students MUST learn about.

This webquest will take you and your students on a journey to learn about Aminah Robinson, letter making and finally creating an art project inspired by her "Unwritten Love Letters" artwork.
