Start a school birthday tradition! Use Crayola® Washable Window Markers or Crayola Window Crayons to draw self-portraits and birthday announcements on classroom windows.
Students explore portrait painting styles of several different artists. The paintings of El Greco often include long, tall figures with faces longer and thinner than most people have. Rubens made many pictures of his children using chalk on brown paper. Students can look at his sketches for some ideas on how to capture their own face in a drawing. Rembrandt liked to look in the mirror and draw himself making faces with wild expressions. Think of an expression to portray on a Birthday Baroque self-portrait.
Students draw a self-portrait on the inside of a classroom window using Crayola® Washable Window Markers or Crayola Window Crayons. Create a unique design or try one of the portrait-painting techniques of the artists studied. Draw outlines using the tip of the marker. Fill in large areas using the side of the marker tip.
Add a written Birthday Baroque announcement. Try reverse writing. Because the message will be read from the outside, write in large, backward block lettering on the inside of the window. Check the Birthday Baroque announcement when from the outside!
