Celebrity Portraits

Students will finish drawing their Celebrity Portraits. They will be applying the elements of line, and shape to create proportion and balance.

Portray is a related term of portrait. The difference between portrait and portray is that portrait is  an accurate depiction of a person, a mood, etc while portray is  to describe in words; to convey. to represent or describe someone or something in a painting, film, book or other artistic work.

Photographer Chris Buck well known for his celebrity portraits describe his experience in the following way.

“I really want a picture that’s going to be a little surprising and delightful for the viewer,” Buck said. “At the same time, if I can squeeze in something that’s a little bit psychological or intriguing that might go a little deeper, then I’d be so pleased if that could happen, too”.

Portraiture

A portrait painting or drawing depicts the image of a particular person or animal, or group. The subject of a portrait is usually called a “sitter”, because traditionally people would sit in front of the artist to have their portrait painted. Nowadays, of course, artists can work from a photograph, so not everyone has to “sit” for a portrait.

Portraits are effective and compelling when they tell us something about the person. A good portrait is not just a visual representation of a person; it will also reveal something about the essence of the person. What the portrait reveals may not be completely obvious – sometimes it can be cleverly implied through a certain expression or pose, an included object, or the artist’s use of color. Sometimes the person in the portrait can become iconic, representing a wider group of people from a specific period in time, who shares something in common.

Students are practicing facial features in their sketchbook to later reproduce a portrait of an artist of their choice.
