We often do portraits of Dad for Father's Day. I actually know quite a few of the Dad's so its always fun seeing the children draw them, many of the portraits have such a likeness..
This project used the lesson by Art Projects for Kids on how to draw a Modigliani portrait and we just modified it to draw Dad. Children were also encouraged to draw a background that Dad would like. My students Prep - Grade 5 managed this. The one above is by a Prep!
I have to say I love how these turn out. Oil pastel on black paper is a great combo!
Check them out and Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's in Australia for last Sunday 4th Sep!
