Homage to Art History

by e10391

Students first researched various famous painters from art history.  Then they picked their favorite artist and chose one of their paintings to recreate.  They drew it by hand, then painted it with acrylic paint using the verdaccio (italian) or grisaille (french) technique which was developed in the middle ages.  In this technique, the painting is first done entirely on a gray scale to create depth and value, and then color is added in glazes.  They did a great job, and succesfully integrated their own personalities into these paintings, check them out:
