Art week next week and school thought it would be a bit of fun to dress up as a character from a famous painting or image! Any ideas - cant do mona lisa or a sunflower as he says it is too girly? thinking of printing something on a white t shirt??

How about going Jackson Pollock and splattering some clothes. My ds is year 2 and would enjoy making that.

We used to have a Scream costume. Do OU have any black robes left over from Hallowe'en?

And if you get reall stuck, there are loads of paintings of nudes.

I was going to say Jackson Pollock!

Or how about Damien Hurst ... www.damienhirst.com/search?query=spot

The farmer from the Haywain?

A random soldier (there must be plenty of war-ish paintings)?

Jesus in The Last Supper?

Graffitti spray him Banksy style?

Face paint him in garish colours like an Andy Warhol print?

Dress up as Andy Warhol - white T-shirt, skinny jeans, blond wig, dark glasses (holding a tin of soup wink
)

Or he could go as a cave man, having just done the paintings in the Lascaux Caves in France.

Spike his hair with gel and (temporarily) dye the ends a strong colour (like red or blue) and send him as a paint brush!
