Using Gridmagic Software to explore Andy Warhol techniques.

I opened an email from a teacher at Milford Primary School with this question:

“I AM DOING A MODERN ART TOPIC AND DIGITAL IMAGING AND WONDERED IF THERE WAS A WAY OF RECREATING THE ANDY WARHOL STYLE MARILYN PRINT WITH THEIR OWN PHOTOS?”


This led to a flurry of emails culminating in my working in the school for a morning, leading a session where students did exactly that! The enjoyment and sense of achievement amongst the students was palpable. Throughout the session I worked closely with the teacher ensuring that she was confident with the software we used and that she would be able to extend students in subsequent sessions.
