AP Art: Art History Research Project

We will begin our artist research project this week-each student has been assigned two artists that reflect their work in some way.  Create a presentation with: 
  • 1 cover page-featuring the artist's image along with their name and yours
  • 10 short bullet-ed biography notes of interest with sources 
  • 20 full size images of their work, each on it's own page
Below is the master list of artists.  We will share the presentations next week and have a short visual and written assessment after we have reviewed them all.
