The day before Spring Break with my AP Art History class, we had just taken a practice exam and there was one class before our vacation. So instead of trying to start the next unit of study I gave each student one of the works and they had to work their artistic muscles! They had to look up the image, sketch to the best of their ability, and then add watercolor on top! This put quite a few kids outside their comfort zone, but in the end they all had fun and it caused them to examine the artworks form and content more closely. Great for an introduction activity, and to get them to observe the work more in depth. Enjoy the images below!
