Recently, I had kindergarten study Paul Klee and his painting “Senecio”. We talked about portraits and how there are all types of portraits. Some realistic, some that are abstract. I had the students look for basic shapes that form parts of the face.
You can see where I am using the Document camera to draw the face and I have Paul Klee’s painting right next to my drawing. That way the students can see how I am creating a portrait like the “Senecio”.
These are a couple of examples I showed them. The students loved them and thought they were so funny.
