Peer Portraiture

5th Grade artists got into pairs and they began their work by looking at the shape of their partner’s jaw, noticing that it was more of a U-shape or a V-shape. They then painted their facial features, noticing the distance and relationships between them. Lastly, they added hair texture and other characteristics unique to them, like freckles and clothing details.
