flowers in her hair... or birds, radios, or candy.

This image by artist and illustrator Kelly Beeman inspired a 4th grade drawing project I did with a few 4th grade classes last week. Kelly is based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She often makes portraits of women. I like the way she alters the human form and plays with color in these images.

With this lesson, students focused on using color value to create 3d form on a portrait and using it to create 3d depth in a cityscape as well.

Kelly chose to fill her subject's hair with colorful birds. The students could fill theirs with whatever they wanted:)
