Educator Resources
  • What kinds of relationships can exist between artist and subject, and how might those relationships impact the work of art?

    How do physical items like clothes and accessories, or physical aspects like facial expression and pose, convey a message to the viewer?

    What artistic choices does a photographer make when creating an image?

    How might a work of art reflect or relate to important moments in history?

  • All Levels

    Have each student create a portrait of themself to hang in a museum 100 years from now. Ask students to consider the following: What would they wear? How would they pose? What would be the setting of their portrait? Students may sketch their portrait or create a photographic self-portrait. Be sure to have students sign their work and add an identifying caption and date for future generations.
