Portraits Inspired by Modigliani by 8th grade
These portraits are based on the artwork of Modigliani, an Italian figurative artist famous for his elongated style and the mask-like facial features of his subjects. I found this lesson on a blog called Deep Space Sparkle. Thanks!! We studied a bit about him and then the 8th grade took on the task of creating their likenesses in his style. They sketched it out, then used a layer oil pastel technique to color it in...
The final results are very cool...check out the likeness!!
