Wig Party Portraits

Connecting to 5th grade American History standards and pop art humor/color this project integrates and supports both themes beautifully. Through discussion and observation (hand outs and historic prints) students are introduced to the fashions of 17th century America/England. They develop their own member of royalty through a series of sketches. The final sketch is transferred to  card stock then completed using water color, crayon and sharpie. Artists can include an ornate frame design and or royal title if they want to.
