    • What you will do: Use the Internet and Art History books to choose and compile a list of 10-12 famous works of art that you like, admire, find interesting, etc. These works could be paintings, sculptures, or even other photographs, and they could be from any period in history. Research those famous works of art in greater depth and choose THREE final pieces that you will recreate.
    • In Your Sketchbook: Find good quality images of your final 3 works…  print the 3 images and put into your sketchbook  write down the artist name, title of the piece, year it was created, and the medium used to create it  AND put them in the drop box too!!! Generate a list of characteristics of each piece. For example: woman wearing blue scarf and pearl earring, dark background, etc. DO THIS FOR EACH IMAGE! Plan your own photography… Look back at your description above and plan how you will interpret each characteristic in your own work.  Consider switching up elements  Think about different props, models, etc.  Your plans should be SPECIFIC!!!
    • Set Up & Take Your Photos: Shoot a series of new pictures (40 image minimum…the more pictures you take, the more options you will have for dynamic and successful images) that recreate the 3 famous works of art you chose. Compile and edit your best 3 images and put them in the drop box along with the 3 famous works of art you saved. Be prepared to share your images with the class in a final critique!
