This is a great research project assignment that requires a presentation. It can be done individually, with a partner or in groups. I love the three part breakdown of it. It helps keep their presentation from being completely informative (helping safeguard from plagiarism and boredom). It guides them in their research, invites their own personal thoughts, engages their critical thinking and ushers them into being more introspective. It also provides a list of both historically famous artists and current artists to choose from.
After this project, I actually take it a step further. I have them create their own artwork in the same style as their chosen artist! The outcomes are very much influenced after this research assignment.
