Art Teacher from Australia
Says Australian art teacher Gina Grant, "I thought you would like to look at some of my fourth and fifth grade self portraits. I had them look into a small mirror and then with a permanent marker draw their faces starting with their eyebrows and eyes, nose then mouth and then hair and jaw line." You can find her art room and many other art departments in the Art Room section.
Students and Teachers Have Their Peeves
"I can't draw!" Art teachers hear this all the time. Students may say this because their art doesn't appear realistic or turns out the way they want. Teachers miss the boat if they don't give their students exposure to abstract art. in reality, ALL students can draw. The only thing that stands in the way of their creating is self-doubt. Read more about this in the Pet Peeves section of the website.
