Celebrity Portraits

Drawing a celebrity involves a great degree of perception and understanding of the Principles and Elements of Art. Proportion, harmony, and contrast are some of the elements applied in these projects. It is very difficult to capture a person’s personality on paper. Ninth grade students have demonstrated to show a great degree of commitment and skills in the execution of these projects.

Here are some examples of the work in process.

World History 2 – links to today’s videos (4/13)

High energy presentation on Nazi expansion

Crash Course Lesson on World War II

We also watched the first twenty or so minutes of the movie “Saving Private Ryan” which presents a very realistic portrayal of the D-Day invasion of the beaches of Normandy, France.

I personally prefer the series “Band of Brothers” to the movie if you want to get a comprehensive presentation of World War II in Europe. That series is over ten hours long, so make sure you find a comfortable chair if you’re going to watch!

Interesting extra stuff on food resources and their impact on World War II

Portraits

A portrait is a representation of a person’s character. The best portraits are the materialization of the idea of a person. Students are using ebony pencils to create a portrait of a public figure. An artist well known for creating portraits of public figures was Andy Warhol.  He painted portraits of Mick Jagger, several portraits of Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe among others. Students have already chosen a celebrity to reproduce using ebony pencils as a medium.
