This has been one of the most fun lessons in pop art. The kids had a three day summer workshop wherein they were to do self portraits in the pop art style. After shooting their faces, we took the pics onto the computer and broke them up into values. Meantime the kids wrote down 50 things that defined them. It was a long and interesting list. Then they started on their canvas, putting down in images or words all those characteristics. After colouring the entire canvas, they started tracing out their portraits one shade at a time. They chose their preferred colours and started filling in the spaces.
The results were so outstanding that we have had requests for more such sessions, while the kids have had their friends and family request for a similar pop art painting of themselves.
