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 colour theory and working with acrylics (but tempera or oil would also work for this!)
It walks them through the various steps
-Colour theory (note these handouts are included!!)
-Finding and printing a source image
-Doing a tracing paper contour
-Final acrylic painting
Included in this product is everything you need for the project:
-The assignment sheet
-Powerpoint with student exemplars / ideas about abstraction
-Colour theory package for acylics
This is a really challenging project, but the final result is always AMAZING!!!
They never let me keep them to show as exemplars, which is a great sign.
