SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v110 n8 p43, 73 Apr 2011
Simply put, a portrait party happens whenever two artists draw each other. In the classroom, portrait parties are a fun and versatile art game. They can be used to introduce students to a wide variety of artists and art skills. With practice, they are adjustable to any class period, and are appropriate for all ages. All one needs to start a portrait party is a clock with a second hand, drawing materials, paper, and an art problem. In this article, the author describes how to host a portrait party.
