Philomath Elementary Teaching Residency 2012

In Feb 2012, I was an artist in residence at Philomath Elementary school working with grades 2nd-5th. I led a self-portrait project inspired by the work of Andy Warhol.

Andy Warhol- Self Portrait 1966, Silkscreen ink on synthetic polymer paint on nine canvases, each 22 1/2 x 22 1/2. The Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Philomath Elementary Self-Portrait Slideshow!!
 Students were taught techniques to sketch their self portrait. The following is a slide show of their work prior to decorating:

Students were then given 4 copies of their self portrait to design using different colors and mediums. We used tempera paint, colored pencils, markers and oil pastels to decorate each portrait differently. Students displayed their work on a black backing and finished pieces were displayed in the halls of the school for all classrooms to see.

Finished Art fills the halls of the school!

 Each set of portraits reflected the many unique styles and personalities of the students! Thank you Philomath Elementary for supporting this fantastic project and keeping art in schools!
