As we only have a week left I have given my grade 6 class a HUGE amount of choice regarding their work. The only major requirement is that they follow the rules of portraiture or purposely break them by exaggerating the features. Firstly the students could choose if they wanted to work on A4 or A3 paper keeping their time limit in mind.
Their choices were either:
to create a Crazy Hair portrait which would focus on the rules and overlapping shapes,
Finally, there was a digital option where the students could draw an accurate portrait using Procreate/SketchbookX and then they would manipulate it using layers.
This week I will be adding Modigliani as an extra option because the students seem to love creating the exaggerated portraits.
