This study investigated the effect of art history lessons on the cultural awareness of a group of middle school students in rural Minnesota. The data from eleven seventh grade students was collected based on their enrollment in the art class, their assent, and their parents' consent. The students took a pre-assessment that gathered both quantitative and qualitative data on their cultural awareness of Iraq and Syria, participated in a lesson and art project about the art of the ancient Near East, and then took a post-assessment. The same procedure was followed for a lesson and art project about the Sioux of the North American Great Plains during the 1800s. Data from pre-assessments and postassessments were compared and analyzed to determine if art history lessons affected their cultural awareness, and if so then how much. Changes in qualitative student responses were also examined. Results indicated that the art history lessons raised the cultural awareness of the students.
