Why Lesson Planet?
A great cross-curricular project for any art classroom, this activity encourages young artists to consider color, pattern, texture, shape and line in their depiction of a historical figure. After researching a historical figure of their choice, art students use the information they gathered about that person's life, beliefs, and appearance to create a pastel scratch portrait of them. This resource includes a list of relevant art vocabulary and detailed procedural instructions.
