Your details and use of color are fantastic Brendon.
What a beautiful piece! Frame it Carrie!
With just 40 minutes left for the last class of the Dec/Jan session, my group of 1st and 2nd graders created these wonderful faces that are a blend of Cubism and tribal masks. They were inspired by the work of a the very heavily pinned Canadian artist, Sandra Silberzweig. I knew instantly when I saw her work, I had to do an inspired lesson.
To create their pieces, the children chose a colored long piece of construction paper and created a "super huge U shape". From there they followed basic facial directions but I encouraged them to really cut loose and create their own designs and patterns using Sharpie. They used both chalk and oil pastel to add color. The final step, as tedious as it was, was to trace over all their Sharpie lines with black oil pastel to really make their work "pop." Beautiful work guys! I'm proud of you all. :)
