I did a compare and contrast with my 4th graders last year with Rembrandt
and Chuck Close. I used finger prints for the little fragments with Close.
I did pastels and charcoal for Rembrandt. for the modeling of darks and
lights. They wrote about the differences. We talked of the difference of
time and place on style. I saw an interesting Scholatic article on Chuck
Close about a year ago. I also bought 2 biographies that were a help. Susan
