In Ms. Phillips's Art through Technology and Design class, the SPMS 7th students researched Andy Warhol’s Pop Art (silkscreen painting) of Marilyn Monroe. They developed an understanding of the complimentary colors as well as their value scales and edited and transformed their chosen inspirational figure in a photo editing program. By combining Art/Design with ELA, they researched information on their individual (who has made an impact on society) and wrote a three-paragraph biography based on their chosen person.
