Inspired by The Scream

I have seen lots of lessons for Edvard Munch's The Scream, but my favorite was done at Art Projects for Kids. I loved the idea the student actually being the subject of their scream image. I had each child pose for me and I took their 'screamiest' scream picture. I then changed the images to black and white and elongated them slightly for a more expressive look. They had the choice of colored pencil or oil pastel to render the background image for their artwork. I then let them them color their figures and cut them out. We attached them to the background with foam dots to have them pop off of the page slightly.
