PROJECT SUMMARY

This project involves about 75 students in my drawing classes. The Multimedia Lab V will be used to create an introductory presentation of Andy Warhol and Pop Art. Students will begin their projects with digital Self Portraits that are later used to create contour line drawings. The drawings are then manipulated using Whole Class Fresco to create their final products. Short essays and reflections will be written to answer the project’s essential question. Multimedia Lab V or Tool Factory will then be used to upload student projects to websites for sharing with the class, family and friends.

OBJECTIVES

By the end of this project, the student will:
· be able to effectively operate a digital camera.
· be able to discuss and describe Andy Warhol and his style.
· be able to create a digital image and reproduce it into 9 different versions.
· be able to create a final product both in 2-D and electronically.
· be able to write an essay and project reflection.
· be able to display their work online.
