The drama teacher has decided on Night of the Living Dead for the first performance of the school year. I am so excited about this! They did this play a few years ago and I loved it!!! For every school play, the Visual Art department puts together some student artwork for the reception/ticket room of the drama theater. This year we were asked if it was possible to do zombie/ 50's monster movie posters. We loved this idea and ran with it. My Intermediate/Advanced/AP art students are creating zombie self-portraits. The teacher who took over my Intermediate/Advanced drawing class is having his students create zombie portraits of their favorite teachers...with our permission, of course! I was going to do a zombie self portrait as a demonstration for my students, but one of my students is in both advanced classes. I felt it was kind of cheating since he is creating my zombie portrait. Then I remembered the drama teacher asked me to make 3 zombie mizzles to be used as props in the play. I then decided I need to make a Zombie Mizzle painting.
I'll have to come up with a few more sketches tonight before committing to one. I'm just not sure I'll be able to use it as a portfolio piece.
