Athlete Portraits

We started class with a slide show about artist LeRoy Neiman.  He is famous for his paintings of athletes.  We talked about his style of painting and how he used many colors.  The students then spent a portion of their class time looking up pictures of their favorite athletes using the chrome books.  They took these pictures and covered them in a 1in x 1in grid to make transferring the picture easier.  Once they drew their athlete, they used paint or colored pencils to fill it in with bright colors.
