Be sure to:
1. Make a background - put your creation somewhere
2. Add lots and lots and lots of details 
3. Leave no white spaces - either drawing or painting.

These pictures should take time to finish. I can't wait to see what you do!

5th Grade 50:50 portraits

Hello My Amazing Artists!

I am so proud of these 5th graders. They worked hard to truly observe, measure, and draw what they saw not what they thought. The final steps included shading and background details. These were done in just 3 classes. These are more amazing in real life.

2nd Grade Royal Selfies

Hello My Amazing Artists!

Second grade worked hard to make these mixed media royal self portraits. They mixed paint to create their skin tone and used observation skills to include facial features and hair color.  We then used the Chatterpix app to create royal identities and animate the pictures.

Kindergarten Todd Parr Self Portraits

Hello My Amazing Artists!

Kindergarten finished up these amazing self portraits. We used the author/illustrator Todd Parr as inspiration. The students had to create the background by  placing and wetting down bleeding tissue paper. We then talked about what makes up a face while looking in mirrors to draw their faces. Next they applied glue to the edges and pressed down to make sure it stuck.
