5th grade’s Rodeo portraits began with me taking a photograph of them. The using a Photoshop filter, I reduced the photograph to just lines. Using the windows as a light box, the students then traced over the lines of the photograph onto a sheet of white paper.
Once they were complete, they had the option to turn themselves into a cowboy/girl or a Native American. Adding details to make it obvious of what they were as well as elements in the backgrounds.
Then they added color using whatever media they liked.
