Week 2 of the 2013-2014 school year brought us these fun "creature" portraits. Week 1 we reviewed self portraits & created a full body "normal" portrait with an interesting place for the background. This week I wanted to continue with portraits, but put a fun spin on it for my students. We started with "normal" instruction for portraiture. After they spent sometime with a mirror, pencil, and paper...I introduced THE TWIST! The kids LOVED it!!! Some did a lot of erasing...others just added onto themselves.
We also discussed taking our creatures & creating a story based off of them. I've got to look at the curriculum, but I'd really like to pursue them writing some & drawing a narrative to go along with these!
OK...LOOK AT THIS NEXT ONE & THINK ICONIC MOVIE CHARACTER!
Here is a hint...."BABYRUTH"
