After switching to remote learning this past spring, two of AACC's Visual Arts classes collaborated on a quarantine-inspired project.
Students from Jennifer Schuster's Image and Design (ART-262) class took part in the emerging phenomenon known as the Getty Museum Challenge. The Getty Museum Challenge is a global project that emerged in early 2020, encouraging those around the world to experience art in a new way during the COVID-19 pandemic. The challenge was to recreate famous works of art using only materials that are at home. Schuster asked that her students recreate a series of their favorite works of art, and incorporate objects that were relevant to the pandemic. Students used their recreations to reflect on the emotions they were experiencing during their quarantine.
Schuster's students provided their artwork to Erik Dunham's Web Design 2 (ART-270) class. They would serve as “clients” to Dunham's students who would produce a series of responsive website galleries. The final design was voted on, and built out as a gallery website to house each students’ recreated artwork and their written reflections.
Below you will find a few of the pictures featured in the project. Be sure to check out their completed website to see all of the photo galleries from this fun project. Special thanks to Erik Dunham and Jennifer Schuster for sharing!
