Gorgeous Paul Klee portraits. These are my favorite of all that I have seen! Art teacher Anne Farrell had 1st graders go over their drawings with orange paint and a roller before coloring with soft pastels. Beautiful effect!

100th day of school in art, we always do portraits. the kids imagine how they think they will look when they are 100. we embellish w/ gaudy jewely, flowers, wrinkles, grey hair and more. we also attach a short story to them about what they'll do, where they will go, etc. they are hilarious!! :) enjoy (and happy 102nd day of school! wooo!).

Trace their face from a photo onto acetate. Paint or collage colors underneath for a new/abstract face.
