Kate was solo in the studio this week. Her fellow student artist, Bennett, wasn’t able to come to class. Kate worked on an acrylic painting. She is doing a great job. After painting, Kate started working on her Pop Art self portrait. I discussed the Pop Art movement – early 1950′s. I showed Kate some of Andy Warhol’s work. I reviewed with Kate the meaning of an “icon.” Kate outlined the highlighted and dark areas on her photograph. In her next class she will transfer the outlining to a thick piece of paper. These self portraits will be painted.
