5th Grade Portraits in the style of Jean Dubuffet Two Different Ways

I saw this lesson on Hands, Head'n Heart.  I never seen this painting by Jean Dubeffet before but I like it... So I wanted to try it.  I did it with my 5th grades.. We need it two different ways.

1.  We had foam head and the student painted them in the same style of Dubeffet.
2.  We used paper and cut out all the shapes to make the portrait

Both were fun and were changing for my students.  Thanks for the great lesson.

sorry the picture are a bit yellow.. not sure what happen

I like your twist on things! Art teachers are such a creative bunch...never two ideas the same. Keep up the great work!

What a great idea to do the portraits in two different ways.

Art teachers and improvising always go together :)

Thanks for sharing
