Are you looking for a portrait or self portrait lesson that won’t intimidate your students and will keep them engaged the whole time? Well this folk art portrait lesson is perfect for almost all grade levels! In this lesson your students will  learn about folk artist, Heather Galler who is best known for her bold black lines, her bright colors and colorful fun patterns! Heather’s style is not only eye catching but approachable for young artists. This lesson can be easily adapted to a self portrait, portrait for a biography unit, creating portraits of friends and classmates and so many more!

This lesson is great for students age 7-14 but really students of all ages (and hey, maybe some adults) can enjoy the fun and engaging style and process!
