Collaborative Installation Piece – Rec Dept Lobby

May 5, 2018 at 10:00 am2:00 pm

Franklin Recreation Department 275 Beaver Street Franklin, MA 02038

Students will look at the portraiture of Chuck Close and discuss his style, background and processes.  We will then look at a portrait of Ben Franklin, our town’s namesake.  The portrait will be cut into squares and each student will be responsible for recreating their section of the portrait using a variety of 2D mediums, considering the style of Chuck Close (using colored pencil, watercolor, tempera, pastels, ink etc.) Enlarging and transferring will be taught to older students who have the more difficult sections; younger students will focus on exploring different mediums to fill in the simpler image areas.  All sections will then be combined, mounted, sealed and displayed in the lobby area of Recreation Department.
