These are some of the Santa portraits my 8th graders finished back in December. We've studied portraits previously, so this project was a great way to use those skills. We used tempera paint and practiced shading in color to get the rich red hues. I love how they each have their own personality. I have some seriously talented 8th graders!
This one is crazy realistic, he looks so distinguished!
I love the shading in the hat on this one. It's as if you could touch the soft velvet!
This one's eyes are so striking! I love how all of them turned out!
