The students get a blank piece of white paper at the beginning of the week which they fold into 4 boxes. After we learn about each artist, they draw a version or interpretation of their photo through the eyes of that artist. At the end of the week, they have an original photograph and 4 very different versions of the photograph in the style of the various artists that we learned about.
I love this activity because it really forces them to apply what they learn about each artist, not just spit back biographical information. It is also a project that can be adapted to any level of language learner. You can even complete the same project with the same group of kids at a later time and just change your artists.
Here is a link to the information and visuals I am sharing for each artist this year:
Famous Artist Information
After my students finish their projects this Friday I will post some examples for you all to see!
