Romare Bearden: Visual Jazz presents Romare Bearden: Visual Jazz, a documentary about the life and work of Romare Bearden, one of America’s greatest painters.
The video is narrated by jazz musician Wynton Marsalis, who masterfully draws parallels between jazz and the art of Romare Bearden.

The video also treats viewers to rare footage of Bearden at work in his studio while he explains, in his own words, what he doing as he creates a collage. In addition, his print-maker describes the active part Romare Bearden took in creating prints of his work.

The Romare Bearden Study Guide contains lesson plans and activities suitable for Grades 3 up to college level, and is available as an instant PDF download when you order.
