Model Artwork

So, in order to make great art, we need to study great art - what we call "Model Artwork." Here are a few examples by Lewis Hine, one of the first photojournalists:

Hine took this portrait on the Lower East Side. We'll be doing the same.

He took this photo of Italian immigrants at Ellis Island. We'll learn about the immigrants back then, and then take pictures of immigrants on the L.E.S. now.

Good, right? I can't wait to meet the students and see what they think.
