In this arts integration unit, Masterpieces Reimagined, students were introduced to some famous artworks that have an impact on history, society, and our own artmaking process. They were assigned artworks and were asked to imaginatively recreate it using their own characters or their favorite pop culture characters. This was done with a hope to develop a deeper understanding of not only the artwork, but also to be immersed in the process in which the artist participated.
