The Valentine Dress from the Outwin Collection

This lesson plan and its extensions are designed to facilitate students' observations of art and then extend to an essay writing assignment. A follow-up writing unit will follow when my sophomores will write a memoir in which they incorporate their own growing up experiences and memories of hurt, frustration, loneliness, joy, and discovery. The best of these products will be submitted to the Scholastic Writing contest and will follow the word count/formatting guidelines dictated by the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards: http://www.artandwriting.org/.

This collection was created in conjunction with the National Portrait Gallery's 2016 Learning to Look Summer Teacher Institute.

Textured Portraits

Students will analyze portraits for the message or expression communicated through portraits with exceptional texture. Contributing to a discussion with the 30 second look, students will look at an image from the 2016 Outwin exhibit to look deeper and explore and infer the artist's intent and interpret meaning. Students will utilize previously made photobooth self-portraits to begin exploration of Photoshop filters. Each student will create a new and originally produced textured portrait. Further extensions to analyze portraits include: conversation extender and contrast and compare. #NPGteach

Selfies Back Then... and Now - Selfies de Antes y de Ahora

Selfies Back Then... and Now - Selfies de Antes y de Ahora

This collection was produced by Marcela Velikovsky and Whitfield Mastin from Bullis School, and Vicky Masson from Sheridan School, in conjunction with the National Portrait Gallery’s 2016 Learning to Look Summer Teacher Institute.
TAGS: #NPGteach, portrait, learning to look, National Portrait Galleryduring the Summer Institute "Learning to Look" at the National Portrait Gallery in 2016.

This project is based on the work by José Gómez Sicre. We want to guide students in their understanding of the work, José Gómez Sicre and José Clemente Orozco, by utilizing reading portrait strategies and an extension exercise in which they create their own selfie. Students are exposed to many tools that allow them to access and evaluate information and a diverse perspective that are available through art and the cultures it represents. This project integrates a number of techniques that allow students to gain a more in depth understanding of the Latin American culture.

Self-Portraits

Artist's reveal who they are on a deeper, more private level by making their own portraits. We all have many areas and facets of our identities: family, religious belief, gender and sexual identity, geographical, age, economic, recreational, aesthetic, racial and ethnic, health and body, educational, and occupational. As artists we will explore the self-portrait and hopefully something positive within ourselves. #NPGteach

Migration at the U.S.-Mexico Border

This activity helps students consider the human experience of migration by analyzing a portrait using "jumping in" strategies to describe the sensory experience; answering a series of guided questions to interpret the portrait before and after reading the informational text about the artist and portrait; and finally, reading relevant articles about migration at the US-Mexican border and using academic vocabulary to describe the push and pull factors at play and other characteristics of this example of migration.

This collection was created in conjunction with the National Portrait Gallery’s 2016 Learning to Look Summer Teacher Institute.
TAGS: #NPGteach, portrait, learning to look, National Portrait Gallery

The collection was originally intended for use in Human Geography, specifically the unit on Population Demographics and Migration.
