I have had students do presentations about painters. They had to come
prepared with a work of art they had done in the artist's style, on something
3-D. Once it was jeans that had been donated, once it was plates, cups, and
chairs and one student did a tablecloth for it. It was fun and added an
element of intimacy to the report. Perhaps your students could create their
own version of their artist's sculpture. Karla
PS It works best if the students are not allowed to read the material. That
keeps them from getting all hung up on things like exact birthdates, and
biographical information that no one is interested in. They tend to get to
the heart of the artwork better if they have to remember it themselves.
