Throughout most of the history of art, artists have been inspired to create portraits of heroes and heroines. Even today, statues and monuments in city parks and plazas remind us of those who have shaped our history, as do painted portraits of heroes and heroines that hang in many museums and public buildings. Consider the meaning of “hero,” think critically about how heroes and otherimportant persons were portrayed in the civilizations discussed throughout Chapters 16-18, and then tell us how you would create a portrait of your own personal hero or heroine using any materials or programs available.
You have two options:
1. You can write a description of the artwork and include references to images in the textbook or links to images outside of the textbook that inspire the style, format, design, colors, etc. of your portrait.
2. Create your own artwork and attach a picture of it here, making sure to include a description and rationale of why you chose to represent your hero in a specific way.
