Objectives: Students collaborate with the Drama production of "Hello Dolly" and create artwork that will be featured in the foyer of the theater. Students use the costumes and props from the 1900s to re-create the mood of that time. We study artists like Julia Margaret Cameron, Klimt, and Eugene Atget and others and emulate their style through vintage tutorials in Photoshop.
