3rd and 4th Grade Drawing Club: Pencil Portraits

Portrait Artist Kayleigh M.

I offered a drawing club on Fridays this nine weeks for both 3rd and 4th graders.  For the past two weeks, I had my daughter Sarah, an accomplished portrait artist, teach a lesson in basic portraiture to the students in these clubs.  The kids seem to get a kick out of learning from a high school-aged artist (especially one who is more than willing to point out when Mr. O. is doing something all wrong), and I think the simple portraits the 3rd and 4th graders produced show a lot of learning and some real talent.  I think we even inspired some to keep developing their own portraiture skills! 

Sarah's work, by the way, can be viewed at
