‘The Portrait Project’ by Golden Horn Elementary

‘The Portrait Project’ by Golden Horn Elementary

“The purpose of The Portrait Project was to practice the virtue of tact by creating several continuous contour line portraits of our classmates. Posing for a portrait and drawing the face of a classmate put each individual in a vulnerable position. While posing and drawing we developed a deeper understanding of how to practice the virtue of Tact. The portrait project contributed to community building.

'Tact is telling the truth kindly. Thinking before you speak. It is knowing what to say and what is better left unsaid. When you are tactful you don't tease or point out other people's differences to embarass them. You are carefull about others' feelings as you would like them to be with you.' (The Virtues Project)

The final product that you see is a portrait mobile created by members of the Golden Horn Elementary School Community.”
