Art History Class

Voyagers: Fall 2016


The idea behind these studies is to expose students in the work of each artist so that they are familiar with their style, methods, and images. (No nude pictures will be shown in class.) We will be having open discussions together about our opinions. Upon completion of this curriculum, your student should be able to easily recognize the artwork from each artist studied. They will also have learned different techniques, mediums, and styles as well as have gained an appreciation for art work in general.

Pablo Picasso – life sketch and review of Artwork

Week 2 Painting day! Self portraits in the Picasso style

Week 10 Jackson Pollock - life sketch and review of artwork

Week 12 Present Artist reports



Discussions for individual art work:

-Compare student’s art to the original. (Not in a negative way, contrast and compare)

-Discuss what is different between student’s work and the artists.

-Discuss which artwork they like better and why.

-Have student tell which techniques they chose to use and why.
