The Art Assignment

Can your students think creatively outside the box? Join curator Sarah Green as she interviews some of today's most inspiring and innovative artists and offers a historical exploration behind their methods and techniques in PBS Digital Studios’ “The Art Assignment.”

Students get to known one artist who explores sound, memory and technology in public spaces, and yet another who composes recyclable, ordinary materials into colorful, unique pieces. They will also explore the world of an artist who creates pieces that focus on scenes or objects that most likely won’t be seen in the duration of one’s life. Whether it’s transforming materials to help people look at the changing environment with new eyes, or taking classic artistic trends and adding a modern twist, this series of educational videos shows students that true art can come in many shapes and sizes.
