The crown is universal a symbol, easy to understand by children and adults, rich and poor, sophisticated and naive people alike. It may represent different things to different people. Jean-Michel Basquiat’s crown motif appears so often in his art it has become a recognizable symbol in popular culture. Celebrating Black History month, we will draw inspiration from Basquait's work to create original piece of our own.
Using white oil pastel, we will draw people, animals and symbols only to be revealed after painted over with water colors. What does the symbol of crown mean to your artist? How will he/she use this symbol in her creative work?
Each art piece will be finished with additional oil pastel drawings and even clippings from the magazine to give it almost street art quality.
Age range: 5-13 years old
