Fun With A Famous Drawing

Student Objectives:

Provided with multiple lectures, examples, study guides, guided practices, and student resources, the students will be able to an open-end assignment and complete a portfolio piece, by deciding what technique and medium to use with little or no assistance, as documented in their portfolio.

Concept:

All projects need to show a complete grayscale, even if the project uses color there will still be a tonal value from 100% black to 100% white.

This should be a completed rendering that would be shown as a finished clean piece of work, simply put, a portfolio piece! The difference about these portfolio pieces, is you can use any medium you choose i.e.; traditional, digital or Photography and video.

Instructions:

Sure, social media is filled with your friends’ photos of amateur stews, homemade sourdough and makeshift masks crafted while staying home due to the coronavirus. But look more closely, and you’ll find another layer of at-home concoctions: scenes reenacting famous paintings and photographs in creative ways. As the trend has continued to spread online since starting in March, helped by social media challenges broadcast by institutions including the Getty Museum in California and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, it’s become a welcome distraction and source of humor for audiences and creators alike. Step back, viral TikTok dances, livestream concerts and quarantine memes; this intensive form of expression is a whole new world of creative labor. In the middle of global uncertainty, it’s even become an important anchor for some.

Spend some time doing research on famous artist and famous paintings. Pick one and redraw the painting so that it has a modern theme or pokes fun at the original artwork.
