5th Graders Express Themselves!

After our Rembrandt vs. Rouault debates, in which students were teamed up to defend an artist, students created their own expressive portraits in the style of Rouault.  Each student began by creating a web that shared emotions they feel and reasons behind them.  Then, they chose a feeling and communicated it in their portrait through physical expression, oil pastel technique and color choice.

What emotion do you think these students are trying to show?
