When you put your name beside an artist no one else can choose that same artist.  Once you have selected an artist on the list you need to research and prepare in a slideshow of the following information about your chosen artist.  (Upon completing the research slideshow you will need to “represent” the artist by creating three pieces of dinner table objects that you will make out of ceramics., but that assignment is for later in the week). Right now, just prepare the slideshow.
