Pick Three art movements. You may use the list to help you. (This is a short list. There are other art movements and you can choose them). Use Google Art Project to help you in your research.
Write a brief description of the art movement that includes the characteristics of that artistic style, time period and some selected artists.
Each description should include at least 1 example artwork (Make sure the artwork was created during that time period and fits the characteristics of the art movement). Write the full title,year, location and artist for the artwork (cite sources!).
Cite your sources properly! Use these the art books in the library or the art room or internet resources (Do not use Wikipedia for this assignment).
