Research Project

Students will pick an artist and write a two page paper on the artist.  A little history about them, their art, and about the work they made.  Pick a specific period from their career because some artists changed their styles as often as you’d change your underwear.  So try to focus on a small part of their artistic career.

Students will also create a piece of artwork, drawn, painted, sculpted, etc, in the style of this artist and present their art with their paper to the class.
