This is an "ABSTRACTED PORTRAIT" painting assignment that is super scaffolded, with step-by-step stages, that's perfect for high school students.
Their final paintings always turn out amazing - and they love that they can pick anybody to paint - a celebrity, a loved one, whoever!
It's meant to teach them both
1. Colour theory
2. Working with acrylics (but tempera would also work)
It walks them through the various steps
-Colour theory (note these handouts are also in my shop - see the link below!)
-Finding and printing a source image
-Doing a tracing paper contour
-Final acrylic painting
Also included are both a page with colour examples, to project on a LCD projector to show your class, as well as a rubric that makes marking easy for you.
The rubric includes a mini written communication component as well.
