Expressive Costume Portraits
Lott, Debra
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v107 n6 p38-39 Feb 2008
This article describes how contemporary costumes, expressive techniques, and mixed media can take "the ordinary" out of figure studies. To pique student interest and create a meaningful figurative study, students are instructed to bring in their latest fashion accessories (hats, shawls, neck warmers, denim jackets, etc.), or shop the local thrift stores to create a unique collaboration of styles. (Contains 4 online resources.)
