|3d Furniture Painting Project||Directions: Study the master painters. You are not to copy their work but to create the 'essence' of their style and/or color. In your sketchboo write a one page report including: Who, What, Why, How Where, etc about the painter who will be your mentor. When everyone is done we will try to figure out who each person's artist was. You either need to bring in your own piece to paint or choose from the teachers' furniture that I have collected. You also need to print one of your master artists's work to refer to for technique and style. If you are doing a piece for a teacher you need to collaborate with them to decide on the artist, style and composition.
Resources: See the art history links at the bottom of this page.
