Today in second class room 11 we studied the artisit James Rizzi.
James Rizzi was born on October 5, 1950. He died on December 26, 2011.
James was an American pop artist who was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York.
He studied art in Florida, where he started experimenting with printing, painting and sculpting. Rizzi’s work often shows his birthplace New York. His paintings look sometimes childish with the bright colours and brilliant joy. Rizzi’s work is always outlined in black and is always full of bright colours.
Today we looked at how Rizzi drew birds. We created some of our own.
These are the directions we followed to create our pictures.
1. Use a black oil pastel and start with two circles that touch in the middle.
2. Add big dots for pupils.
3. Draw two dots for the nostrils then add a big upside-down letter “U” over the head.
4. Draw a letter “V” for the beak.
5. Add a body, fluffy feathers on the chest.
6. Finally, stick legs.
