Students will look at two artists and investigate their visual responses to the cultural trends of their time period. This project will culminate in th student identifying a current cultural trend, write about the effect (positive, neutral or detrimental) it has on society and create a visual response, using relief printing, that shows their viewpoint on the effect the trend has on society.
