Museum Self Portraits, ages 10-14

Wow! These are fabulous! The students chose a famous painting from a stack of books that I have. We also looked at some examples of some current artists that have done similar paintings of people viewing art in museums. We talked about frames, flooring, shadows, how we stand, posture... and then put themselves viewing the painting as if they were in the museum. Note the great observation used to copy the paintings, the wonderful frames, lighting direction and their posture.
