Engage your students in creating portraits with resources and lessons from the Alabama Arts Alliance, in connection with the 2018 Alabama Bicentennial theme (People of Alabama) and related to art, social studies, English language arts, and math curricula. The lessons are geared to the 6th grade curriculum, but are applicable to other upper elementary and secondary grade levels.

Learn to guide your students in creating and sharing mini portraits of historical figures and people of personal interest while exploring a variety of techniques and media with hands-on art integrated lessons. Teachers receive lesson plans, curriculum resources, art making supplies, and 3 hours STIPD credit for participating in the workshops. Portraits created by the students will be displayed at the state Capitol in November of 2018. Space is limited to 20 teachers.
