I found LOTS of images from the site I posted yesterday and am in the
process of finding better quality images for some of them.
Here is the site http://www.doubletakeart.com/ -- search by one word from
title (even if you do not know the title) many works will come up that
contain that word in the title. (for example: I just search for Uncle Sam
and found an image by Warhol).
Since I have a former student entering a contest on the theme of
"Democracy" I searched for Rockwell first (fits best with her style of
"My fundamental purpose is to interpret the typical American. I guess I am
a story teller."
"I showed the America I knew and observed to others who might not have
noticed." - Norman Rockwell
P.S. The student I spoke about is studying to become a forensic artist.
This past summer, she took a class in forensic art and drew portraits
solely from description -- they were amazing!!! She credits her middle
school art teacher for taking an interest in her and pushing her to excel
in art....That middle school teacher was ME... I just had to post this
because some of my middle school parents are spreading a rumor that "art is
going to be eliminated from the middle school curriculum"...They are
telling their children that "Art serves no purpose in the middle school". I
have had many other former students go into an art related field -- this is
just the most recent. I have contacted my administrators and our district
curriculum advisor to make sure there wasn't something said that I missed
(smile)...and will try again to call the parents who are telling this to
their children. No wonder my students are not motivated! I told you before
I was battling negative attitudes towards the visual arts......
