Halloween Art History continues with bats adorned with images inspired by the works of artist Jean Michel Basquiat.
This is one of my favorite projects to share with younger students in grades K through 3. You can learn more about Basquiat and his work in this TEDed video -https://ed.ted.com/lessons/the-chaotic-brilliance-of-artist-jean-michel-basquiat-jordana-moore-saggese#review

Our next artist spotlight for Halloween Art History is Andy Warhol. We’ll be making Warhol Witches inspired by Warhol’s celebrity silkscreen portraits and unique color palettes. This is a great project for introducing the color wheel, complimentary colors and more.
Here are some links where you can learn more about about Andy Warhol and Faber Birren, a scholar on color theory that Warhol referenced in his work.
