Studio Art, Centereach High School

Works by students Taylor Doell and Lauren Saroli


Incorporating The Rembrandt Project Website was a final project for the students in Studio Art at Centereach High School. Each student explored the site and utilized the zoomify to examine every self-portrait. Then the class studied how Rembrandt portrayed himself as various characters in his self-portraits and how his etching techniques focused on lights and darks. With limited supplied, the class translated their self-portraits as Rembrandt did by envisioning themselves altered by either props, age, or characters such as a beggar, a king, an old person, etc. in scratchboard. The project was a wonderful culmination of our curriculum and encouraged the student's self-exploration.
