Andy Warhol Color Theory

We got to know everything about color in this Painting and Drawing studio. Artists explored primary colors, secondary colors, and complementary, while creating a Pop-Art painting similar to Andy Warhol's colorful art prints.

Children began by drawing a simple contour of their favorite animal on paper. This drawing was photocopied and the 4 copies was painted with a special medium to dissolve the paper leaving just a "skin" which was glued onto the four corners of their painted canvas.

The 4 animals faces, eyes, and ears were then painted in bright colors opposite of each other to make them stand out from their backgrounds. Aritst's practiced their steadiness with a brush and outlined each animal in black acrylic paint.

At the end of the class we talked about what we liked about our work and what we might change, or do differently next time.  We also ask questions and gave compliments to each other about our work!
