Learning about self-presentation through portraiture

Following their visit to the Brooklyn Museum where they explored portraits around the world and their meaning, The Brooklyn Charter School students created their self-portrait using photography. Mr. Ricky and Ms. Marie first reviewed the components of a portrait: facial expressions and posture, clothing and accessories, background and setting, to encourage the students to make clear choices about how they want to present themselves. Working in pairs, students picked out outfits, props and poses and had their picture taken by their classmates. Students are now decorating a frame for their portrait.
