Art Time Line 1 - 701

(click on me to make me larger)

The idea for this project is to create an Art History time-line using a quote that runs across the various images representing different eras in art. Because there are 15 students in the 701 class there will be 15 different panels.

The quote that you all agreed upon is attributed to Alan Kay who is an American Computer Scientist:

The best way to predict the future is to invent it.

Now that you have brainstormed the basic idea for the project and I have made you a rough example of what the end product could look like, as a group, the following things need to be done:
  • Each of you will pick a time period to paint (choosing from a hat).
  • You will do some simple research on the time period
  • Choose an art piece to represent the period
  • As a class you will make a 'mock-up' of the time line with your chosen images
When you get to this point, you will start to talk about final project dimensions, sizing for each panel, font and how to stencil the quote into the art pieces as you set about reproducing them.

For a great Art History link go to SmartHistory and take a look.
