I have two videos to share with you about drawing portraits! Both of these tie in with the portraits I drew of the young activists in NO VOICE TOO SMALL.
Watch my mini art class on visual storytelling in portraits, recommended for grades 3-8, This video is seven minutes long, and delves into a little bit of portraits in art history before introducing the #MeetTheArtist meme. I then walk you through how to create your own using my template or on a blank sheet of paper.
This second video is recommended for grades K-2, and is only three minutes long. Younger kids can watch me draw my own #MeetTheArtist cartoon self portrait, and then make their own!
