Explore and respond to the work of Marcel Duchamp, creating a collage of a reworked face.
Study the work of Marcel DuChamp, in particular, the L.H.O.O.Q. (revisited Mona Lisa). Discuss the techniques and effects of reworking an image. What is your response to the reworked Mona Lisa compared to the original? Why might DuChamp have decided to rework this painting?
What common needs, characteristics, and ideas do people around the world share? Identify differences among people, too. For example, food is important to all people, and people around the world eat different foods. Make a chart or web to illustrate your findings.
Find a full-faced ad or photograph in a magazine that you can rework in DuChamp's style. Use an eraser or Crayola® Scissors to rework the face by removing parts of key characteristics, such as eyebrows, lips, and hairstyles.
When you have erased everything that you want to change, photocopy your picture. Use Crayola Markers and/or Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils to draw features back into your picture, creating a whole new look for your portrait.
