Students in grade 3 recently learned the difference between the way artists create different types of portraits. Profiles, caricatures, self portraits and portraits of anyone in all different styles were compared, by looking at famous paintings in a turn and talk introduction. Each student was then given the challenge to draw themselves using mirrors once specific directions were give on how artists draw the eyes, nose and mouth realistically. Here are just a few of the many wonderful examples completed. I think you will agree, who needs cameras anymore! ~Mr.G.
