Black History Month
We looked at some of Kehinde Wiley's work as part of Black History Month. We took his famous portrait of former US President, Barack Obama, and created self-portraits in that style. We made printing plates from styrofoam to print ornate backgrounds to our portraits and then used oil pastels to enhance our photographs.
We celebrated Black History Month by learning about the incredible work of Martin Luther King. We produced a combined piece of art work using shading techniques.
