This is a PowerPoint presentation I created for my middle school fine arts students. It introduces students to found object art, including Marcel Duchamp's "Fountain" artwork. It also asks students to critically evaluate what constitutes as "art".
It introduces students to a lesson where they will re-design found objects using a subject, theme, juxtaposition, and color palette. It gives examples of each and asks discussion questions along the way. I use it as a valuable resource to begin planning for the design project.
