lichtenstein lesson idea to share
this is what my art 1 hs'ers are currently working on - its going really well! we looked at interiors by lichtenstein: http://www.guggenheimcollection.org/site/artist_work_md_883.html http://www.postershop.com/Lichtenstein-Roy/Lichtenstein-Roy-Interior-with-Waterlilies-1991-2801633.html http://www.abacus-gallery.com/cgi-bin/shop/shop.pl?fid=1035970697&cgifunction=form http://www.mcachicago.org/MCA/exhibit/past/Lichtenstein.html http://www.artbrokerage.com/retail/lichtenstein/licht_wallpaperwithbluefloorinteriorpg238.htm - discussed and made a list of oustanding features of his "comic book" style, like solid outline, simplified/geometric shapes, limited color scheme, shading with lines and dots... - chose a mag photo of a room (you could also have students bring in photos of a room from their own house) - sketched it in pencil abstracting/simplifiying a la lichtenstein, also PERSONALIZING the composition by adding things (for example, i added a lava lamp, african violet, my dog, and a dog toy to mine) - tr
ansferring to final copy paper and completing with colored pencil these are the basic guidelines; we left a lot of options open, like using blends and fades to acheive a more realistic effect than with just solids, using other types of patterns to fill in... i didn't want to feel like we were copying Lichtenstein, i wanted that to just be a starting point. to emphasize this, i showed students van gogh's bedroom and lichtenstein's version: http://www.masterworksartgallery.com/vvangogh/vangogh178.html UGH! i can't find the link to the lichtenstein version, but its out there! :D wendy free (still working on the nighttime painting idea!)
