2nd Grade Scream Portraits

2nd Graders focused on some art history for this lesson.  We took a look at Norwegian artist, Edvard Munch, painting "The Scream."  We discussed the style Munch used, Expressionism, and students were asked to give their thoughts on why the man is screaming.  We had a great discussion, those 2nd graders came up with some great ideas!  To find the real story about Edvard Munch's inspiration for "The Scream"  go here

Students were asked to recreate this famous painting looking closely at the use of color and how Munch blended those colors together.
