It’s always so good to see these young men in the studio. We started with an Art History lesson – Early Italian Renaissance – “Madonna of the Book”, Botticelli, 1480-83. Note AH category. The boys worked on their designed animals. They are getting close to finishing. These animals are taking awhile because they are very detailed. When done, we will cut the animals out and adhere it to a background. For the last 10 minutes of class the artists worked on their Pop Art self portraits. I reviewed the ideas behind the Pop Art movement. I showed Trey and Ben how to start outlining the highlighted areas on their faces. I love the photo we took of their b/w faces:) The top animal is Trey’s and the bottom one is Ben’s.
