The purpose of this Mini-PBL is to focus on how art (painting, photography, sculpting, propaganda, etc.) can be a valuable source to a historian. Students will use the Fabrication Laboratory to create models of art pieces from the World War I and World War II eras. Students will then utilize the groups collection for a performance interview for a job at the Louvre.
