Magazine Portraits!

This is a great project to do with 5th and 6th graders!  Kids at this age feel very self-conscious about their drawing skills, so giving them a project where the end result is SUPPOSED to look funny is a win-win!  Thanks to all of my friends who have donated magazines to the Art Room, especially the ESPN magazines (the boys LOVE them).  I started by showing the first photo (thanks to a project I found on Pinterest).  We talked about sizes, proportions, texture, details, and how to integrate all of those things into one great work of art.
