Expressive Portraits April 10, 2009

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 7:30 am

The 3rd graders are wrapping up a self portrait unit.  Beginning with just pencil, the students learned to draw themselves using correct proportions and secret measuring tricks for accuracy.  They are now taking what they learned about the face and giving their self portrait an expression.  Some students are sad, excited, surprised, worried, silly, and tired.  These large self portraits are enhanced through expressive color of chalk pastels.
