Artist Report

On the facebook group Art Teachers, there were two cool artist report ideas that I saw today.
The first was a painting on a bottle with the report rolled up as the message in the bottle. This project is the idea of Jodie Kill-Victoria. Here is what she has to say,

“Tried a different approach to teaching art history with my high school painting class this semester. This lesson involved researching, evaluating, recreating and writing a personal letter to an artist from history that they were given. We painted using acrylic paint and sealed our bottles with a spray gloss. We then rolled up our letters for the finished “Message in a Bottle” art lesson.”

The second idea is an artist sketchbook report. This was created by
The elements on the page are 5 cool facts, 5 identifying characteristics, why are they important, a quote and 7 pictures of their work.
