Get to Know a Masterpiece

In this assignment each student chose a masterpiece to reinterpret in collage form. This assignment was closely tied to our museum visit and in a similar way help students have a greater experience of other artists work.

While creating this collage students develop a relationship with a piece of art, sit with it and break it apart. I love this project because it gives us an insight into the way students see and interpret the assignment; when recreating a face some students some students look for complete faces in a magazine, some break them down looking for just the right feature and some start from scratch and cut a feature freehand.
