create MLK portrait

With the recent birthday celebration in remembrance of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the upcoming focus on Black History Month (February)—the students at Viewmont Elementary School have created some beautiful pieces of artwork to reflect their ongoing classroom studies.

Under the instruction of Mrs. Denise Knowles, art teacher, the second grade students designed pieces of a puzzle, not aware that their end result would reflect a portrait of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The students were instructed to color their piece of artwork using light and dark colors as they formed designs within the space. They had been studying the work of American pop artists including Roy Lichtenstein, Peter Max, and Andy Warhol—which influenced the students’ artistic style.

When the students completed their individual pieces, Knowles placed the pieces together, producing the surprise image of Dr. King, Jr. This collaborative art challenge complements the students’ study of Dr. King’s contributions to society.
