This is a FLASH ART presentation project that I give my grade 9 and 10 students.
If they leave my class without knowing the "greats", like Picasso and Monet, I feel like I'm a failure as an art teacher :)
This asks them to do a really quick presentation on an assigned artist
(they pick their artist out of a hat - they get excited this way!).
They paste the handout into their sketchbooks, as well as the organizer sheet for their own presentation.
It asks them to look for interesting facts, and do a mini critique.
This way it really generates a great class discussion - we start every class with one of these.
Quick, easy to mark, and they learn a lot!!!
NOTE - there's an accompanying Powerpoint in my shop with all the artworks in it.
I find it's easier than asking them to do a slideshow themselves.
