Arcimboldo Self Portrait
Introduced 11/30 Project Due 12/16/11
Guiseppe Arcimboldo was an Italian painter who was most well known for his portraits that were comprised of fruits, vegetables, books and animals. He lived during the 1500's and originally painted typical oil paintings, most have which been forgotten. The students are going to use his idea of portraiture is creating their own work. I will be introducing the artist and the next project with a Power Point presentation and each student will get a project assignment sheet with the requirements, plan sheet, and grading rubric (a copy is available for download below).
