Your 1 Week of Homework – Due on MONDAY July 10 – Link Here

Research the visual examples of work by one of the following artists.

Winslow Homer, Marie Bracquemond, Charles Demuth, Georgia O’Keeffe, Thomas Eakins, Mary Cassatt, Edward Hopper, Eva Gonzalès, Dong Kingman, Lucy Bacon, Reginald Marsh, Emily Carr, Charles Sheeler, Laura Muntz Lyall, J.M.W. Turner, Helen McNicoll, Thomas Moran, Georgia O’Keefe, James Whistler, Berthe Morisot, Andrew Wyeth, or Edma Morisot.

Write up (type it up in 12 point font, Times New Roman or another serif font, 1” margins, name at the top, if you do it in Google Drive – share it with fkorb@waterforduhs.us – otherwise – print it) a brief background about the artist – where they lived, where they made their work, who they knew / were influenced by… that sort of thing. Describe five (5) things (and use images as examples) that you found interesting about the work of them. Why did you choose those artists versus the others? Talk about the ways in which they used their materials and how they made their brush strokes / mark making techniques.


  • Create one work based on a direct observation of one of their works (know the Title, Medium, Size, Year, and of course the artist’s name).
  • Create one work of your very own utilizing the style of the artist you have chosen.

Two artworks DUE along with a VERY short paragraph about the artist. Monday – July 10, 2017
