Martin Luther King Jr. In the Style of Andy Warhol

Finger painting! To anyone who thinks that Elementary Art is all about finger painting, I give you these masterpieces.

First and second graders studied the civil rights movement in class? We used a high contrast photo of Martin Luther King Jr., projected onto large paper. Using only our fingers, we painted each portrait using two shades of paint. We looked at examples of Andy Warhol's colorful prints as our inspiration for our repeated MLK Jr. portraits. These will be displayed at Friday's civil rights assembly, led by Mr. Young's class.

  1. Hello-
    I'd love to do this at my daughter's school and was wondering how you projected the images on the paper. Thanks!
