Pop Art portraits

After completing part I (self portrait) and part II (celebrity portraits) in pencil, we moved onto adding color to part III of our portrait series. Students traced a person of their choice 4 times on a piece of large paper. After that, they painted or colored in oil pastel in 4 bright pop-art style colors in each square. We were inspired by And Warhol's celebrity portraits. . .

First they used the light table to trace.

Once they were ready, they used paint or oil pastel to fill it in with color blocks. They could only use 4 different colors in each square.

These are a work in progress. Soon we will be finishing up the 3 portrait series and comparing them altogether.
