Grade 9 Visual Art

Posted: April 13, 2020

Hi again everyone. I just recently saw a great idea from a Visual Arts teacher at BHS that can be accomplished at home for your home learning. I would like for you to study a composition of art and then try to recreate it using photography. So, imagine recreating Da Vinci's Mona Lisa...You could pose, dress, recreate the background, etc.. as closely to the original painting as possible....then capture it using photography. There are all kinds of famous paintings to choose from, Ex:  Girl with a pearl earing (Johannes Vermeer), American Gothic (Grant Wood), Whistler's Mother (James McNeill Whistler), The Screem (Edvard Munch), Self Portrait (Van Gogh), etc..

Im really looking forward to seeing how creative you are with this. It should be fun!!!
