Norman Rockwell

The artist I want you to learn more about for February is Norman Rockwell, an American illustrator and artist. He was born on February 3, 1894 in his parent’s Upper West Side Manhattan apartment in New York City. I found these two videos for you to watch. They not only show you a tremendous amount of his artwork, but also give you valuable information about both the artist and the changes taking place in the United States during his lifetime.

What do you think about his artwork?
Why don't you try to make an illustration showing an activity or an event in your life that was important to you?
