working on our helios portraits...


we looked at a lot of different helios portraits, ranging from pencil drawings, sculptures, bronzes, oil paintings, even graphic novel illustrations. afterwards the kids created their own portraits using oil pastels and permanent markers. we discussed the difference between warm and cool colors and afterwards painted the background of our portraits using warm colors and a wet-on-wet painting technique. 



oona felt her helios should have glasses...










it was nice to see some of the kids using ideas they got from the other helios examples- as a teacher it's always fun to see your students making connections...
