Pastel Scratch Portrait

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.

Lesson Planet provided the materials during student teaching that helped reinforce the skills I taught my students. I am now using it in China to help with teaching ESL. It is a wonderful resource and I will keep subscribing!
