Hi everyone, my 8th Graders and special ed have just studied Chuck close and
they were doing the gridding system for their portraits. They are painting
them using warm and cool as an underpainting in watercolor and now are using
tempera to put a layer over it with tints and shades. I am stuck with what I
want them to do for their backgrounds. Any original suggestions?
I was thinking just to have them paint it black, to have the portraits stand
out but it seems a little boring.
P.S. There are job openings at my school in Manhattan, NYC (henry street
school for international studies) in almost every subject. If you are interested
