I can’t tell you how much I adore this Modigliani-style portrait that a 4th grader made today. I find her Mona Lisa smile and hint of blush so sweet that I could look at it all day. Beautiful work, Francesca C. If you’d like directions on this project, see my posting here.
Note: My curriculum plan for this month is doing a series of self-portraits. First week is a portrait with standard proportions (eyes in the middle of the head, nose halfway down, etc). Second week is this Modigliani drawing with exaggerated proportions. Third is a lesson about Picasso and with his cubism portraits, which I have posted about here.
