Warhol Art

Following our visit to the Andy Warhol exhibit, we decided to have some fun with portrait art inspired by what we saw.  (Thanks to my friend, AK, for suggesting the idea!). 

I’m sure many of you are familiar with this --

Well, it’s supposed to come out something like that picture of Marilyn Monroe above.  I was supposed to put each picture against different-color backdrops, but my kids, being my kids, had to color in their faces, too!  Oh well.

In case you might want to have some fun with this yourself or with your kids, we followed the steps from here.  You’ll just need a few sheets of acetates (transparencies), markers, a black-and-white photo… and you’re pretty much set.

More arty stuff this weekend.  Josh has to complete his First Holy Communion by this Sunday and we haven’t done anything yet.  Yikes.
