8th grade portraits February 4, 2009

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 9:10 am

The 8th graders recently finished self portraits.  They looked at the silkscreen prints of Andy Warhol for color inspiration and high contrast design.  They also learned about the grid system of drawing that Chuck Close uses, and combined the two methods for the portraits.  The students also looked at the recent Shepard Fairey image of Barack Obama for comparison.

A few finished paintings:
