The Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade students created portraits that depicted a certain emotion. We began the lesson by letting the children view photos of a person showing various facial expressions (angry, surprised, scared, etc). We discussed each photo, and the elements of each face that lead them to know which photo showed a scared person verses a surprised or angry person. The next step was for the students to make their own portraits that displayed the emotions that we discussed. The last step was color application, which was created with oil pastel and crayon. They are all so expressive!
