Wednesday will be our last class to work on this project. Today you should strive to make finishing touches, and begin writing your artist statement. I will provide feedback and suggested changes on both your project and artist statement next class. Your artist statement should be about 150 words. If you are not sure what to write about, begin by answering the questions below:
Who are you portraying in your portrait?
What makes your portrait unique?
Why did you choose this subject?
What does this portrait mean to you?
How images, colors, and Photoshop effects you chose to use affect the end product?
Who or what were you inspired by?
How have these influences made an impression on you?
How do these influences manifest themselves in your portrait?
What do you want people to take away from your portrait?
What message or emotion are you trying to convey?
