There’s more to a portrait than you might think. Portraits are often viewed as a mere depiction of a person when in actuality they are a visual text that can be read as biographies that communicate significant information about a person’s life. This engaging workshop, using the Museum’s collection, teaches how to help students build background knowledge. Teachers can apply this strategy to teaching historical and literary figures across the curriculum.
