Art History in HarlemPosted: February 4, 2017
My co-workers and I are spending some time teaching up at P.S. 171 in East Harlem. Each student will be painting a head and face that has qualities from a specific period of art history – such as impressionism, cubism, modernism, and pop art.
Because we are a cosmetics company, we are using bodypaint make-up as our color medium. Our 3rd through 6th grade students used a variety of methods to apply the pigment to their heads. The results were expressive and colorful.
