History, Labor, Life: The Prints of Jacob Lawrence Curriculum Resource Guide was created by Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) to provide exercises based on National Core Arts Standards and to support educators, both within the museum’s exhibition spaces and in their classrooms.

This guide provides learning exercises to explore the life and work of Jacob Lawrence, whose artistic dedication to the themes of social and historical consciousness, community and aspiration have a special resonance for educators and students alike. Lawrence’s prints provide the basis for activities that encourage students to examine, evaluate and create art, while providing cross-disciplinary links to mathematics, language arts and history.
