20th Century Artists

Mr. Machtay will give students a chance to select an artist. The list includes many graphic designers, people who have designed magazines or ads or logos; it also includes many architects, sculptors, and people who design everything from lamps to monumental public sculptures. You will have time to select an artist you like.

Begin researching your artist and finding images of the artist’s work.

 

ARTIST RESEARCH

Each student will get a Word Docx from pickup folder: artistresearch.docx.

In the left-hand column are writing prompts for each slide of a PowerPoint. Follow these prompts, but figure out which of them are relevant for your particular artist.

  • ABOUT THE ARTIST
  • HOW HE/SHE BECAME AN ARTIST
  • IMPORTANCE & FAME
  • CHOOSE AN ART PIECE 1
  • CHOOSE AN ART PIECE 2
  • YOUR OPINION

The artist research document is due on Friday, March 4th.
