Art History

For our Art History project, we chose the neoclassical movement, and in particular the George Washington portrait by Gilbert Stuart. In my group, I worked on painting the cut out, Jerry worked on the presentation, and DaQuan acted in the video. If I was to do this project again, I would measure the cut out of George Washingtons head so the film would look more realistic.


Artists Create Original Art
     My portrait was original due to the fact that I reflected it across the middle of the paper and drew the same portrait completely opposite. I used opposite colors and had my portrait facing the opposite way. 

Artists Develop Art Making Skills
     During this project, I developed the skill of tracing. By using this skill, I could replicate my portrait and flip it across the paper.

Took project home, so no picture
