Third grade expressive self portraits

Third grade artists looked at the life and artwork of Modigliani. He was involved in expressionism and didn't paint exactly what he saw; rather he painted how he felt. His portraits were often distorted and his colors weren't always realistic. Our self portraits attempt to follow in his footsteps. We first drew in pencils, then we outlined our drawings with white glue and then when the glue was dried, we added color by blending analaguous colors in chalk pastels.
