The students in Mr. Adams’ 8th grade art class started with PhotoBooth to create a high contrast image of themselves. They printed three copies and made three stencils, reducing their images to just white, gray and black. After carefully cutting out each stencil, students used the silkscreen printing process to force colored ink through the screens with a squeegee, onto paper.
These prints are inspired by the PopArt portrait work of 60s-80s era artist, Andy Warhol.
It was a complex and at times frustrating project with many steps and the need for very careful work, but the students persevered and the beautiful work speaks for itself
