Matthew Ronay develops fantasy installations within gallery spaces. This lesson will promote and encourage student’s imagination to creating his or her own fantasy animal and forest environment. Students will learn about Ronay’s artwork, and the importance of his handmade scenery and characters that relate to primitivism and spirituality. Students will illustrate these influences by making imaginative animals to guide them if they were to walk through one of Ronay’s installation forests. It is critical for the students to select and be able to defend what animal they choose to interpret and why.
