We were inspired by the awesome portraits over at Apex Art found here. For our lesson, we started with looking at the super realistic illustrations of Norman Rockwell. We also looked at family portraits of some of our staff members and teachers here at Suffield Elementary. We talked about the way photographers arrange people when they are photographing them. We talked about balance and overlapping and we also had a few lessons in facial proportioning. For color, we used multi-cultural markers, regular markers, and watercolor paints.
