Your homework is to do more research on Fantasy painters such as the ones mentioned in the brief: John William Waterhouse, Rossetti, Mucha (atmospheric subtle fantasy). Create a page to show their work with notes in your journal.
If you have time, think more about three possible plans for your handscape…..doodle your thoughts on a page titled “Ideas”.

I would like to wish you all a prosperous New Year.
Seniors 1 and 2 Alternative Programme students have been playing with optical illusions…..here we have an art room floor that may or may not eat students 😉
Please print and put in your journal. I expect you to have started the initial phases of the project by the time you come to our next class. 🙂
Research masks, why do people wear them? What are they used for?
Write some notes on your findings and print five photographs out of masks that inspire you. Stick them in your sketchbooks.

DONT FORGET A ZIP LOCK BAG TO KEEP BOTH YOUR MASK AND WORKING CLAY IN…..(2 BAGS?)
