8th graders are starting to work on a self-portrait project. The first step was to enlarge their image (a photo taken in class), and later to finalize it with sharpie. There will be many more steps to this process. Check back for updates!
We did grid enlargements on famous artists (M.C. Escher, Pablo Picasso, Vincent Van Gogh, Ansel Adams, Leonardo Da Vinci, Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol, and Wassily Kandinsky) and the last two days we did Mini-Murals based on the artwork of Keith Haring.
This week in Art, We worked on a group enlargement project with drawings/paintings from famous artists, like Leonardo Da Vinci, pablo picasso and other well-known artists. We also got tested on these famous artist and some of their work like drawing hands, starry night and others.
This week in Art class we picked a famous artist and then we created a grid enlargment. We chose from Andy Warhol, M.C Escher, Salvador Dali, Vincent Van Gogh, Ansel Adams, Jackson Pollock, Pablo Picasso and Leonardo Da Vinci. After making a choice between these artists, we worked within our groups to recreate one of their pieces.
