Jasper Johns

Jasper Johns - TAKE II

The study of Jasper Johns continued this week with a different group of students. We decided to experiment with Jasper Johns inspired letters
We did collage work first. We used some newspapers, but also some pages out of old books with great pictures and maps! We did some ripping and also some precision cutting to make the backgrounds just right. The students then used permanent markers to draw the letters on the collage. Finally, they used paints and chalk pastels to finish out the work.
The results were fantastic!

once the collage is done, add letters in ink

Little people love paint too!

 Using pastels really enhanced the collage work.
