I was inspired by the beautiful school portrait mural at smART Class, and thought we would give it a try here at Suffield. During our first week of art classes, we went over art room procedures and rules, and then we got down to the joyful business of creating artwork! We made these wonderful little portraits based in color theory in first through fifth grades. The students drew and then colored themselves based on the color of table where they sit. The younger grade levels colored themselves using the red, green, yellow, or blue color families and the older grade levels added an analogous color partner.
