|Investigative Question or Issue: Who were the Hudson River School Artists - did they paint the Adirondack region? Why did landscape paintings become so popular?|
There should be a brief introduction of the Hudson River School - images from books, posters, a clip from the PBS "Adirondacks" video - very short - just to make sure students can see examples of the artwork.
