Roy Lichtenstein Self-Portraits (Part 2)

5th graders do very special projects that no one else in the school does. So for their projects we started with the same color lesson as the younger grades, then watched the same video as grades 2-4 on artist Roy Lichtenstein.

Then I took a close up photograph of all the 5th graders, printed them on regular paper and then they traced the outline of their faces and bodies in the windows.

Then they went over these pencil lines with a Sharpie,picked one area to color in a solid Primary color, then filled the rest in with BenDay dots.

The results were BEAUTIFUL!
