From Ancient Egypt to the selfie, portraits have served as a humanist expression of identity, class, and culture. This class will examine and discuss the meaning and implications of portraiture in its various forms. This course is tailored for K-12 educators to draw and paint the head using charcoal, pencil, and watercolor, and to take these techniques back to the classroom. By manipulating lighting, context, medium, and composition, K-12 educators will create meaningful portraits.
