This is my biggest PDF lesson plan booklet to date and is the result of over 5 years of portrait making. I’ve broken down the secrets of teaching a portrait lesson into THREE TECHNIQUES. Each technique is outlined in the guidebook and when combined with various mediums, makes portrait making easy and doable. Simply pick the technique that is best suited to your grade level, choose your favorite medium and start creating.
The guidebook includes a list of my favorite products (which happen to be basic and inexpensive), a list of my favorite books to read before the portrait lesson and lots of handouts to make the job easier for you.
Portrait making is the quintessential art project for children and is on every standards-based list. Eliminate the guess work of knowing what to expect from each grade level, what supplies are best and how manage the project for quick class turnover.
