Third Grade Finster Portraits

The third graders are completing their Howard Finster-inspired self-portraits.  I was sad I was still on maternity leave for the very beginning of this lesson - the introduction to Howard Finster.  I love teaching this lesson SO much!  I love how the student learn about facial proportions but also about how artists can take artistic licence with this (and how some "artist", particularly "folk artists" never even learned the correct techniques or went to art school).
If you'd like to learn more about this amazing folk artist and his spectacular art space, Paradise Gardens, you can check out this website here.
