This lesson is part of a sequence (or bundle) pertaining to Art Analysis Strategies.
Students will select an Old Master painting and create an abstract painting in response to it, using contemporary figures, settings, or issues. Students generalize the shapes in the painting as either geometric, hard-edged shapes or organic, free-flowing shapes. The placement of objects in the composition should match the original image. Students test out their shape abstractions with rough sketches, then select warm, cool, or limited colour scheme to work with (choosing a colour scheme would increase the “abstract” effect). Students then discuss how their new composition and colour choices affect the viewer and change the meaning/interpretation of the original art work.
