This is a power point introduction for a group famous artist project. These slides show students what is expected of them, project components, and what they will be graded on. The last slide has a list of suggested artists, but you are able to modify based on your curriculum. I prefer to introduce a new project through slides as a way to keep paper waste to a minimum.
This project asks students to: Write an essay on their famous artist, give a group presentation teaching their peers about the artist, and creating an artwork inspired by the artist, but using a different medium.
This project has been tested in my classroom and proven successful as way to teach art history and allow students to think critically about the artists contribution to art history.
