Cool Mash-Up Art



This is a mix of art genres


A mix of two artists....Haring and Mondrian

Be creative, do some research, and ask for help when you need to!








Visual Comp Final Assignment/Exam


The theme for the production assignment will be “Artistic Mash-Up” focusing on art elements and principles of design.  This production assignment will involve students infusing or “mashing” two or more concepts within the visual arts together to create a new, innovative artwork.

 

Possible mash-ups can span different artists, time periods, media and more!  It will be up to the teacher and student to take the concept in an innovative direction.

 

Possible ideas include “mashing” of:

 

-different artists (different Masters, old and modern, etc.)

-different historic art genres

-different media and materials

-different arts areas (history, criticism, production and aesthetics)

-different subject areas (Art and Math, Art and Science, etc.)

-different art careers

-different objects (natural vs. mechanical, real vs. mythical, etc.)

-and more!

 

 The final product must include:



The finished artwork

Artwork title

Artist statement (Description of the Mash-up Concept and Elements/Principles used)

Here is a copy of the rubric - use it to check your work along the way.


This is your final exam. You have two weeks to do it and I will not accept it late. This must be turned in on Friday, May 19th by the end of class.
