Institution ArtsConnectEd

ArtsConnectEd iPad Challenge #3

Teacher Outline:
Every portrait has a story to tell. In this lesson, students in grades 9-12 will explore the story behind portraits from many times and cultures, then create a self-portrait that tells their own story.

Use your sketchbook to answer the 20 questions found in this ArtsConnectEd set.  Please be sure to read all directions carefully.

After going through the slideshow and answering the questions, you will create your own expressionistic self-portrait that tells a story about you.  Your final self-portrait can be realistic, abstract, or symbolic.
