Egyptian Self-portraits, 3rd grade
Our first Ancient civilization project is complete, which is the merging of self-portraits with the art of Ancient Egypt. We looked at examples of tomb painting, sculpture, hieroglyphics and architecture before we drew ourselves as if we were living in 3000 BC Egypt. The metallic paint pens and papers add a nice sparkle, although it is hard to see in these pics. Most of the figures we saw were in profile, but most of us opted for a more modern, forward facing approach. Thanks to Practical Pages for the Egyptian costume handout I found on Pinterest - it was a great visual aide. Next up, Ancient Greek figure pots!
