Modigliani Art Project by Keana

Keana+Modigliani+LR-487x1024This is one of my favorite projects to do every year, it just turns out amazing work every time. The basic idea is to draw a self portrait that is stretched out like Modigliani. Something about the distortion frees students up from getting overly fussy, and thick pastels are the perfect media for imitating Modigliani’s rich dark look.

DIRECTIONS
1. Cut the paper to 8″ x 18″. Fold the paper in half three times to make 8 equal sections as shown. Draw a head, neck and body as shown on the diagram.
2. Draw hair around the head as needed.
3. Modigliani drew his faces in stretched proportions as the eyes usually sit in the middle of the face. Draw your eyes near the top of the head, and the mouth near the bottom. Continue with a nose and eyebrows.
4. With a black oil pastel, trace the pencil lines using a lot of pressure to make a thick line. Fill in the skin, hair and clothes with more pastel. If some of the black lines get covered up, trace all again when complete.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
