The best way we learn is by accessing information in multiple ways; creating art, or in this case- recreating art is a perfect example of deeper learning. By investigating into a smaller set of works (4), and creatively thinking of how you can recreate the works- you are accessing multiple learning styles and multiple intelligences. Years from now, I bet you will definitely remember when you had an assignment where you had to re-create artwork at home with every day items, sometimes even our families and pets!
************For this Assignment, we will be revisiting the Getty Challenge! This is a two part assignment; part 1 is creating the images, writing the summary and uploading here; part 2 is posting some images onto the Discussion board. Part 1: The AssignmentRequirements for your Assignment
