Darger's Improving Art Technique

Clip: Season 18 | 1m 50s

The third clip associated with the "In the Realms of the Unreal": The Artist and Society lesson plan sees Henry Darger's story grew increasingly complex as he improved his art technique. Students should discuss how did Darger use popular (borrowed) images in his work. They can also create collages that re-tell Darger's narrative (or students' own story), in the visual language of urban New York.
