I had my advanced painting class do a parody for their final exam last year.
they coudn't' use a well known painting. they had to research the artist, then
make up an alter ego or a fictious character and do piece in he style of that
artist using comical media. the sky was the limit. They could use 3_D
materials if they wanted to. Some were just a stitch. All loved the assignment
and it got the compositional problems across.
