  • Impressionism
  • Matisse/Fauvism
  • Picasso/Cubism
  • Roy Lichtenstein/Pop Art
  • Modigliani
  • Sculpture (Easter Island/Venus/Classical/African/Pre-Columbian/etc!)
  • Ancient Egyptian
  • Van Gogh
  • Georgia O’Keefe
  • Jacob Lawrence
  • Klimt
  • Dali
  • etc!  Tell me one!

So sorry I’m out!

GD1 – work on your crazy portraits and send me the questions and illustrator file if you’re done.  Make 1 post of ideas for the creative font (what materials/objects/etc will you use and how) and make another, separate  post of ideas for the Multiple Me project (what’s your story?  How will you pose?)

GD2+ – Mr. Minigan wants the play poster done for Thursday.  Send him and me a draft via email.  (Ryan, he already gave some requests to your earlier email.  Try and make him happy!). Post your work to your blog.  “Think Before You Ink” and/or Playing Cards after that.  Post whatever  you decide to work on.
