AP Studio Art: Prominent Artist Inspired Self Portrait Project

St. Michaels Middle High School AP Studio Art teacher Bridget Whited shares the recent Prominent Artist Self Portrait Project:

Artists learn from other artists. Each generation stands on the shoulders of it’s predecessors, reaching a little farther, discovering a little more. Looking at great art enables an artist to create more insightful and interesting work, in the same way that reading great literature can make a student a better writer.

The more ideas you are exposed to the more ideas you will develop. Within this assignment Advanced Placement Studio Artists were challenged with researching and identifying a prominent artist in history to inspire a self portrait. In order to complete this challenge the AP Studio artist first had to analyze the prominent painter’s work and identify exactly what inspires them about the chosen artist’s style. In the process of critiquing the prominent artists work and applying the stylistic approaches into a self portrait, students discovered new techniques and methods that they could apply within their personal future artwork.

Each portrait is as unique as the Artist who created it, making this gallery of work a beautiful compilation of the personalities, viewpoints and talent within the small group of extraordinary AP Studio Art Students.
