This is the "Inspiration Powerpoint" that I give for their final major project - for their SHOE ART.
They literally take a shoe and paint it :) This project is always a hit!
Kids take grade 10 art just so they can do this project - which is pretty amazing.
Part of the project is that they pick a "MENTOR ARTIST" - any artist, photographer, designer, graphic artist, etc. - someone whose work will inspire their own
This Powerpoint goes through:
-what the "mentor artist" part of the project is
-lots of exemplars of students actual shoes
-exemplars of the required final "research report" sketchbook page on their mentor artist
Here's the original project package:
This Powerpoint goes through a few student examplars, the importance of not copying the artists' style exactly, and examples of the required sketchbook page they have to create as part of the project.
It gives you a good idea of what this project is about - and gets them thinking about it!
