Edvard Munch was born in Norway in 1863. He studied art at The Royal School of Art and Design in 1881. His dad didn’t like the idea of him becoming an artist and destroyed some of Munch’s paintings. Munch lived with 6 other artists and had paintings in art exhibits. He experimented with different styles of painting during that time. After a while he got tired of painting like other everyone else and began to paint in a more emotional way… his paintings stopped looking like real stuff. In 1889 he had his own art exhibit and got a 2 year scholarship to study with a painter at a school in Paris. When he was in Paris he went to museums and saw paintings by Van Gogh, Gauguin, and other artists Munch liked. He liked how they all used color to make the viewer feel what they wanted. After being in Paris a while he started painting some of his most famous paintings. The Scream is the most recognizable and popular of them all. He did 4 different versions of this painting: 2 pastels in 1893 and 1895 & 2 paintings in 1893 and 1910.
Here we are painting our own version of THE SCREAM. For the background we drew images of things that scare us.
Here are our masks.
