Here's a lesson I love teaching: portraits of famous Egyptians. It started off originally as a King Tut portrait, inspired by THIS post from Kathy from Art Projects for Kids. Since then so many students ask me if the can instead do Cleopatra or Nefertiti, so now I just call it "Egyptian Portraits".
You can find my original post HERE.
Grade 6 students drew their portraits on 12 x 18" heavy white paper. they outlined them in Sharpie and then panted them with liquid tempera (mostly blue and gold).
Stay tuned for our upcoming name cartouches!
