Learning to draw realistically:
This step-by-step lesson is available for download here on TPT as a powerpoint.
Second graders are learning how to map out a face, measure for the place and size of each feature, and look closely at each line as they draw a contour line drawing of George Washington in a three-quarters pose. Their portrait is based on the painting by Gilbert Stuart who sat in front of George Washington to paint. His accuracy helps all future generations know what the "father of our country" looked like.
Learn about George Washington:
Students can download the template of GW without a face to speak through the Gilbert Stuart portrait and share one fact they learned about George Washington and explain what they would do if they were president using the Green Screen app by Do Ink.
