Creating Your Power Point 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Things you should know: Your presentation should be on an artist (living or dead) that you admire or find interesting. You may work alone or with ONE other person. You need to decide who you will work with and sign up for and artist TODAY. You will have the next 2 class periods to research and create your PowerPoint presentation. You will be presenting your PowerPoint to the class. Have a minimum of 10 slides. Contain relevant, correct information. Be in your own words except where correctly quoted. Have a visual element on each slide. Be creative, interesting and match the style of your artist. Have NO MORE than 2 or 3 sentences of text on each slide. Have a “Works Cited” slide at the end listing sources where you got your information. Contain a 5 question quiz at the end. The questions should be relevant and test to see if students were listening to your presentation. Finding an artist that doesn’t create the occasional offensive or even pornographic artwork is very difficult. I have tried but simple can NOT look at every piece of art that an artist ever created to make sure it is school appropriate. In your research you may come across artwork that is offensive. The school tries to block these images but sometimes they get through. If you run on to a work that offends you just click out quickly and move on. If it is really offensive let the computer lab person know so they can block the site. Good luck! BRIDGET RILEY Likes to use optical illusions in her art Chuck Close Focuses on very large portraits.
