What's going on in the art room?
Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let EVERYONE else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art. -warhol
This week 5th graders began the task of creating a self portrait in the Pop Art style of Roy Lichtenstein. You can find more information about this artist here. This project began with me surprising the kids by asking them to express an emotion with their face while I quickly took a picture. Students then colored the back of their picture with charcoal, and then traced their picture onto a white piece of drawing paper. Students will then outline their creations, color with marker, add a text bubble, and create a fun frame for their artwork.
