Career portraits

First graders looked at the portraits of American painter William H. Johnson and shared some style ideas in our own portraits of career people. Students were asked to draw a portrait of someone with an interesting career, or maybe even a portrait of themselves as an adult. We used Johnson's whimsical drawing style, black outlines, and colorful shapes. It seems that in about twenty years, there will be many professional ninjas and martial arts instructors!
