Art III Students Inspired by Kehinde Wiley

 

The Art 3 students painted a series of portraits inspired by painter, Kehinde Wiley.  These large-scale artworks were a preparatory assignment to provide the students with an opportunity to work within large dimensions, akin to the impressive scale of Wiley’s work, before beginning their final paintings.  Our students were tasked with depicting a sense of stature and strength through figure positioning, facial expression, color, and pattern.
