Portraits in Progress
Each student drew a portrait and then Mr. Giannetto made 4 copies. Each portrait was then cut out and glued to black paper. The artist Andy Warhol was introduced as an art history connection and his artwork depicting repetition was highlighted.
Next week the portraits will be painted with watercolor paints.
