Show Me Something Cool

For homework you are tasked to do the following:

  1. Visit smarthistory.org.  This website is a virtual art history textbook.  You can search through it by artist name, artistic movement/time period, or by theme.
  2. Select three artists/cultures from this site that you think are interesting.
  3. Select three works, one from each artist/culture you chose.
  4. Either print these images out and put them into your sketchbook…OR…sketch them directly into your sketchbook.
  5. Identify the work by providing its title, the name of the artist, and if known, the year it was made.
  6. Explain to me, in writing, why you find that work interesting.

This is due Monday, 9/11, at the beginning of class.  It is a formative grade.

This assignment is rather simplistic and straight forward, which is fine.  With elaboration.. reflective writing…maybe additional sketches of close ups or research on the artist…it could be a sketchbook page that could qualify for your Process Portfolio.
