Thanks to the giving.

 I love Native American Art... but I really, really love portraits by Kindergarteners and first graders.
Once again, my little ones knocked it out of the park with these portraits.
We started by looking at examples of early photographs of Native Americans and a painting by George Catlin.

We discussed headdresses, and how eagle feathers were awarded for brave, heroic acts.

Then, using guided drawing, drew the face discussing proportions and proper placement of facial features. We added the headdress and feathers and BAM! Awesome work. The color was added with crayon and liquid watercolor to create a "fall landscape" effect.

Hope these wonderful drawings made you a little more thankful today.
