AVI3O Final Assessment 2D or 3D !
HOMAGE: An act or expression of respect or honour; great respect especially as shown by outward action. Combine an older artist with a contemporary artist and your own personal influence to create a new piece of art.!
In this culminating activity you will pay homage to a great artist by somehow referencing either their style/ content (subject matter)/ technique/ medium in a new original artwork. You will not simply copy their work, but reference the work in some way leading to your creation of an original artwork. You may use either painting (acrylic or watercolour) or drawing techniques (pen and ink, pencil crayon, pencil) or build something with various material we have used this year (cardboard, plaster cast, wire, assemblage of different materials) to create a 3D sculpture. (if you plaster on top of the sculpture you can then paint/ draw on its surface if you’d like to).!
PROCESS:! STEP 1) Choose an artist to pay HOMAGE to. Research as many as you can until you find one you like. (other artists may be acceptable, ask me!)!

This image may include a portrait of the artist or could just reflect images that are characteristic of their style. Eg. Matisse used a lot of bold colour in every image!
STEP 3) BRAINSTORMING/ CREATIVE PROCESS - Begin sketches for your artwork (2D or 3D) based on some aspect of the artists you choose to pay homage to. You must have 4 mini compositions sketched out with variations of your plan. Beside each box explain which elements and principles you are focusing on. *** this sheet can be found on the following page. (THINKING/ INQUIRY mark)!
