Portrait of Dad in the style of Modigliani

We often do portraits of Dad for Father's Day.  I actually know quite a few of the Dad's so its always fun seeing the children draw them, many of the portraits have such a likeness..

This project used the lesson by Art Projects for Kids on how to draw a Modigliani portrait and we just modified it to draw Dad.  Children were also encouraged to draw a background that Dad would like.  My students Prep - Grade 5 managed this.  The one above is by a Prep!

I have to say I love how these turn out.  Oil pastel on black paper is a great combo!

Check them out and Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's in Australia for last Sunday 4th Sep!
