Altered Landmarks (2013)

Students chose a famous landmark to be the subject of their painting. They found a digital image of the landmark on the Internet and then used the Cut Out filter in Photoshop. They also chose one main color to work with a  monochromatic color scheme and altered the color in Photoshop. Students had the choice of painting a ceiling tile to be permanently installed in the school's hallway or painting on Watercolor paper and keeping their painting. I allowed students to use a projector to trace their image onto the canvas since the focus of the project was to work on painting and color mixing techniques. This project took eight 55 minute classes to complete.
