Students also created their own portraits with some constraints. The first portrait was created using only one line, then students created a portrait using a U shape and finally by using an oval.
At the Nasher we saw a variety of portraits and discussed what a portrait can tell us about the subject. It was awesome to see some pieces we previously studied and to see some new artworks. The children also loved making their own artwork inspired by the Kehinde Wiley and Amy Sherald piece. Check out the video below to see what we did at the Nasher and to view some of our artwork.
