Character Portraits


Program description

Students either create their own character, or capture the essence of a character from a chosen story. Portraiture and expression come into play as students bring out subtle details about their character, and the story setting. What does “surprise” look like? How does a scowl and a furrowed brow tell us something about that character? What time of day, what season, does the story take place?
