Artist Research

I created a new mid-term assessment project this year. My students had to select one artist to research from those we discussed in the 500 years of the portrait lesson.  The students were required to create a biographical research blog post and also an interpretive piece inspired by the artist they researched. Below are some of my students’ interpretive pieces. Click on each one to enlarge.
