The Kings and Queens of 5th Grade

Fifth Grade

The Fifth Grade students created self-portraits based on the work of Georges Rouault. Students learned that Rouault painted portraits of King and Queens for a living and that his portrayal of clients had to be done well. Since each class has to do a self-portrait it seemed like a perfect pairing. Students created self-portraits based on his style. They had to create a personal design through use of patterns and symbols. Students also needed to choose colors and create texture in the clothing with watercolor paint. For inspiration students look at work by Rouault, playing cards and a postage stamp.
