4th grade Modigliani Portraits

These portraits were completed over a 3 week time period and are the result of lots of perseverance! I feel like I turned into a coach for the first part of it, but that's totally understandable. Teaching kids how to draw portraits is no easy feat! And to compact it, I had them draw their portrait Modigliani style---long, swan-like necks, small mouths, long noses and (optional) empty eyes. I stressed from beginning to end that we were creating "likenesses" of ourselves and this seemed to ease some nerves. All that being said, I am very proud of my 4th graders!!

  1. Your students have created great self portraits using Modigliani's distinctive style. Not an easy exercise, but they have done an excellent job!
