Modigliani Portraits - 3/4

My 3/4 students are travelling well in the development of their Modgliani portraits. They are looking amazing and I am so very proud of their achievements. Can't wait to display them!

Modigliani Portraits - Year 3 and 4

We use our Visual Diaries to plan our art works and to record facts about what we are learning at hand. Our learning intention was to learn how to draw a Modigliani inspired portrait. Before the students began drawing, we discussed Modigliani's style. They noticed that the portraits had tilted heads, eyes with no pupils, long noses, long necks, small mouths and slender shoulders. I guided students on how to draw a Modigliani portrait. Most results were wonderful considering this was their first attempt. I can't wait till next week when we will decide what medium to use.
