U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts.
We will also have the Hartford Art School visit tomorrow, Wednesday at 10:20 to discuss their program and review portfolios. Above is a great video showing one of the school's recent pop-up shops in town.
Finally, we will begin our artist research project this week so each student will be assigned two artists that reflect their work in some way. Create a presentation with a cover featuring the artist's image, a short 1 page bulleted biography with sources and 20 full size images of their work. Below is the master list of artists. After the research and presentation you should create a piece inspired by anything you learned about either or both of the artists. We will share the presentations next week and have a short visual and written test on them afterwards.
