    Watch this quick video to see what is new in the virtual art room.



    You will be creating an Artist Instagram! This does not mean you are creating a digital account, or anything online, but instead choosing an artist and creating a drawing/design using the template provided to create a page that might resemble what an artist's page might look like. It's fun to think about artists who lived in different time periods and what they would take a picture of on a daily basis. We know that instagram is a platform designed to share pictures, so think about what that artist would share each day. Maybe it is a snapshot of the park they walked through to get to their studio each day or it is a photo of the materials they use when they create. Maybe, like the artist Wayne Thiebaud, they painted a specific subject matter (he painted baked goods) so perhaps he made a visit to a bakery to buy a cake to paint. Think about what the artists daily life might look like and create that through the series of small squares on the page template. You can use any medium you would like for this- if you would like to draw them in, that would be great- you could paint, you could take your own photos and print them out and glue them onto the template- whatever works best for you. My goal is for you to research an artist and think about their daily lives and what makes them unique. That is what I would love to see you show in your squares. I have a direction sheet for you, a template to print and draw on, and a student example from last semester to check out. If you don't have access to a printer, just trace six squares and a circle on a white piece of paper, and that can easily work too. Email me if you have any questions.
