Re: art research project ideas

extra credit last year. They were required to
research an artist and type up a short biography as
the main part of the poster. They also had to include
a small print of a work of art created by that artist,
a time-line of important events during the artist's
life, a picture of the artist, either an informal
critique of the work of art that they included or
historical information about that work of art and a
list of references on the back of the poster. I
graded of accuracy of information, readability,
neatness, composition of poster, and inclusion of all
required components. I hope this helps.
