Students in art class are creating superhero paintings.

We began by analyzing the themes and colors of superheroes that kids know about, like Superman, Batman, Spiderman and Wonder Woman.

The kids have to incorporate a logo, gloves, belt, boots, mask and cape into their superhero portraits. They may omit one of these features if it does not fit the theme of the superhero they are inventing.

On day one, the kids are working with a neutral gray color along with the primary colors of red, yellow and blue. Many superhero costumes feature these cheerful colors. On the second week of painting, we will be working on details like flesh colors and any other colors these young artists will need to complete their superhero themed paintings.
