Kids always love creating portraits of themselves and their friends. As a teacher, however, I get tired of seeing (and teaching) the same straight-ahead, centered-composition, no-background selfies and portraits. So how do we get away from those portraits? How do we do something different?
It’s actually pretty simple–add a new element to the portrait. Instead of a boring blank stare from your subject, get the subject busy with something; in this case, they will be eating or drinking. This addition will make the portrait more exciting for your students, more interesting for the viewer, and most likely an all-around better piece of art.
