Artist Research 1: Choose an Artist

Open Google Image Search and be prepared to search for samples of work from different artists.

Mr. Machtay will present a PowerPoint with the different categories of 20th Century Artists and Designers. There will be:

  • GRAPHIC DESIGNERS
  • ARCHITECTS, SCULPTORS, CONSTRUCTIONS (there’s a lot of overlap)
  • PAINTERS: REALISTIC or ABSTRACT (and many along the border of both)
  • PHOTOGRAPHERS

After Mr. Machtay’s presentation, he will ask students who are interested in Graphic Designers to step up to his desk. Then he will ask for students interested in photographers, etc.

When the teacher hands you the name of an artist, you will do a Google Image Search. If you like the artist, start saving large size images of the artwork. If you do not like this artist, wait until all students have an artist, then you can switch.

THIS IS A ONE-DAY PROCESS!
