This is one of a series of PowerPoint presentations designed to get students analysing and talking about the work of well-known artists, and then creating their own artwork inspired by the art they have studied. Each presentation should be sufficient for a project lasting several lessons. The presentations contain the following:
brief biographical text
links to online resources
questions to focus looking at artworks
activity based on an aspect of the artist’s work (not a copying exercise)
evaluation of project
Artists in this series: Camille Pissarro, Jean Cocteau, Amedeo Modigliani, James McNeill Whistler, Marc Chagall, Gustav Klimt, David Hockney, Rembrandt
NB Copyright restrictions have sometimes made it necessary to rely on online material for images of artists’ work. If links cease to work, please contact me and I will do my best to put things right!
