Over the few two weeks we have been studying the work of a once famous Pop Artist called Andy Warhol. First the children used their Ipads to look at his biography, from this we discuused what we know about him and the features of his work;
We then used our Ipads to take some portraits of our friends and had a go at taking self-portrait photographs (selfies) raedy for us to sketch our own self portraits using different strokes and pressures to create mood. We used mirrors to look closely at the size, shape, location and proportions of our features
This week the children have used a varity of media both explore colours, we have been exploring warm and cold colours, mood, tone and shade and which of the colours compliment each other well using contrasting colours, shade, pressure and brush strokes. TWe then used our experiments to choose a final 4 complimentary colour for our backgrounds as can be seen below.
Next week we ill be using our digital portraits to complete our own Andy Warhol style Pop Art!
