Funny Faces Tempera Resist

Subject

Emotions

Description

It is common for artists to employ specific colors, mark making, textures, etc. to create mood in their artwork. By carefully manipulating the elements of art and principles of design, artists can project emotion onto their subject matter or even the viewer. In this unit, learners will apply a resist technique that reinforces their understanding of the relationship between substances such as oil and water.
