Imagining the Stories behind the Portraits

Speaker: Staff Educator

Portraits can tell us a lot about the person they are portraying. Choose a portrait either from the special photography exhibition Face It or from the permanent collections, and write or draw a story about the subject of that portrait. What can you guess about that person based on their portrait? What do you think they might enjoy doing? Decide for yourself.
