Image Research Due: 10.19

Research Paper: Choose the artist who interests you most and research them for your presentation. At least five sources must be cited in your bibliography. Use at least three non-internet sources. The oversized reference section at the Benjamin L Hooks Central Library is a good source. Write a 2000 word paper about the artist: who they were, who their influences were, what their art training was like, when they worked, what sort of work they did, what sort of techniques they used and lastly, describe their impact on their peers.

The final paper must be emailed to me at before the start of class on 11.21.

Presentation: Prepare a 10 to 15-minute PowerPoint presentation based on your paper. It should include at least twenty images of your artist’s work, and at least five of an artist who influenced your artist. You may also wish to include images that establish the time and place in which your artist worked.

A few tips:
Do not read directly from your paper during your presentation. Speak from your personal knowledge and rely less on reading cards. Speak clearly, slowly and with enough volume to carry your voice across the room. Maintain eye contact with your audience and try not to fidget. Most importantly, remember to breathe!

Paper due 11.21.

Presentation due 11.30
