Students chose a famous painting that they wanted to work with. They did a sketchbook drawing of the painting and then decided what 'modern twist' they were going to give it. Next, they drew the image onto a piece of gessoed Stonehenge and then painted the image with acrylic paints. We first covered a series of Acrylic Paint Techniques as well as experimental paintings in the style of their chosen artist in preparation for their final paintings. Students also completed an Art History Page after researching their artist and style.
You can tell by the paintings below how much they were into this project!
