I have a project and in my instructions it states:
* Have a broad area of art selected for your project, for example, architecture, sculpture, film, video art, installation art, performance art, painting, drawing, photography, or Internet art.
* Within your chosen artistic medium, begin to think about one theme you want to research, such as Mexican fresco paintings or Buddhist sculpture.
My question is, are greek or italian scupltures an appropriate selection?
Yes. Either of those would be appropriate. You should limit your topic to a particular time period -- like ancient or Renaissance.
Your broad area, then, would be sculpture.
Next, you'd need to think of a theme that runs through all of whatever type of sculpture you choose. For example, here are a couple of websites to get you started if you choose ancient Greek sculpture:
You can conduct a similar search. Go to www.google.com and enter themes in italian sculpture or themes in ancient Roman sculpture -- read widely.
You're very welcome.
Another fascinating topic might be ancient Greek vase painting -- but I don't know if that's too specific for your assignment.
