This is a writing assignment that can help your students learn about contemporary artists and their work. They will select a single work from a single living artist and write about it. The prompt is divided into 3 sections. Who the artist is, and why they create their work. Description of the work and finally why the student was drawn to the work. This double-sided sheet also includes over 150 artists currently working in their field. This list includes Painters, Sculptors, Choreographers, Photographers and Installation artists. This is also a really easy assignment to give to a sub to execute.
