Second graders studied the Statue of Liberty for their "portrait". While it's not exactly a portrait, the drawing required them to concentrate on placement and proportion of features as well as observational drawing by looking at pictures of the statue.
|Students mixed blue and green watercolor to make the perfect oxidized copper color. They added fireworks with crayons in the background and then painted the sky black.|
Third graders took on the self-portrait idea with a totally different perspective. They concentrated on the art element "space" while drawing themselves falling. This project took four classes to complete, but it was worth it!
