oshrty & mr. hughes


"You made me look like a grown up."

"You made me look like a rubber action figure."

I'd buy that action figure by the way.

(Attention teachers: If you are interested in hosting a portrait party at your school, check out the Portrait Party 2.0 that we started on Art Ed 2.0. There are lesson guides, student examples, and lots of other teachers excited to collaborate with you.)

an international portrait party


Melissa Woodland and David Gran organized a portrait party for their students through Art Education 2.0. Melissa's Art 1 Students were paired up with David's art students from a high school in China. Students swapped photos electronically and drew each other. You can see more of the portraits on flickr and artsonia.

ylhn & mr. hughes


For as long as I have been teaching, I have made this offer to my students: If you draw me (outside of class), I will draw you. At the moment, I owe portraits to about twenty kids but that just means that there is always something fun to do at lunch time.
