The Power of Portraits explores the genre of portrait painting with art technique lessons for watercolor, acrylic, and mixed media portraits created by portrait artist, JoDee Luna. Video links for a three-part series on "How to Paint Eyes" and an instructional video for Watercolor Portrait.
Also included are language arts lessons that focus on the following learning targets:
I can create a portrait that demonstrates my strengths and write an Artist’s Statement that explains my art.
I can analyze a portrait, cite evidence for strengths, and write a short constructed response.
I can value others by viewing their portraits, reading their artists’ statements, and sharing encouraging comments
Color and black and white copies of artwork featured in the lessons will help students to master portrait painting.
