Artist Pages - Grade 9

From time to time I have students research an artist prior to beginning a project and record their understanding of that artist and their work by making an Artist Page.  They are encouraged to arrange all the relevant information in a manner that represents or connects back to the artist.  This gives me the opportunity to see if they are ready to begin the project.  This was their very first one on Rene Magritte/Surrealism before they did a surreal collage using Magrittes artistic devices - transformation, scale, levitation, juxtapostion, transparency and dislocation.
