Symbolist Project

The students in Art III studied the principles of the late-19th/early 20th century movement dubbed “Symbolism” that originated in Paris. They specifically studied Edvard Munch and his use of composition, color, and developing a “mood” to visually communicate his feelings and ideas. Students were required to use the Fibonacci spiral or Golden Rectangle to guide their composition, and had to communicate a distressful feeling or event that they have experienced in their life. Each student had to create their work on a 24″ x 18″ piece of cardboard, as Munch was known for using cardboard as a surface material for painting. Students also had to use at least three media; one being oil paint and the other two media were of the students’ choosing. Below are examples from the 2nd and 7th hour Art III classes.
