1 release dates: July (06) 2006 The Mini Page Publishing Company Inc. A portrait gives us a picture of someone. Portraits can be drawn, engraved, carved, molded, photographed or even filmed. You probably have portraits in your house. You have seen them in museums, libraries and at school. Art experts at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., tell us that you can learn a lot about someone by finding clues from his or her portrait. Portrait clues Clothes: What are subjects or sitters wearing that tell us something about them? Background: Are there any items in the background that might tell us more? Someone famous: Is the person in the portrait known to you? What is he or she famous for, and is it shown in the portrait? Questions: What questions might you ask this person if you could talk with him or her? Answers: Can you look at a portrait and think of four things that you might say about the sitter? Feelings: What kinds of feelings do you have when you look at the portrait? Is the subject happy, sad, thoughtful, or what? Be a portrait detective. See if you can bring the subject to life!

Through the years, the building served as the office where inventors could apply for patents and display their inventions. During the Civil War it was used as a hospital. President Lincoln s second inaugural ball was held there. At one time it was to be torn down for a parking garage. John F. Kennedy, by Elaine de Kooning, 1963, NPG, 1963 Elaine de Kooning Trust John F. Kennedy The National Portrait Gallery Sculptor Nina Levy first models her subjects in clay.

5 Read about being a portrait detective in by Betty Debnam Appearing in your newspaper on. from The Mini Page by Betty Debnam 2006 The Mini Page Publishing Company Inc. (Note to Editor: Above is cameraready, one column-by-4 1 /4-inch ad promoting Issue 28.) release dates: July (06) from The Mini Page by Betty Debnam 2006 The MIni Page Publishing Company Inc. Standards Spotlight: A Portrait Detective Mini Page activities meet many state and national educational standards. Each week we identify standards that relate to The Mini Page s content and offer activities that will help your students reach them. This week s standards: Students identify works of art as belonging to particular cultures, times and places. (Visual Arts) Students use different media, techniques and processes to communicate ideas, experiences and stories. (Visual Arts) Activities: 1. Select a family member or friend and create your own portrait of that person. Share your portrait with others. 2. Collect photos of people in the newspaper. Select people from different fields: athletes, entertainers, government leaders and regular citizens. Put your photos in your own portrait gallery scrapbook. Write a sentence about each person under his/her photo. 3. Cut out the head and shoulders of someone in a newspaper photo. Paste the head on a large piece of white paper. Now create a portrait of that person: draw the person s body; draw the person in an interesting position; draw an unusual background for the portrait. 4. Look at the portraits in today s Mini Page. How many portraits show (a) people in sports, (b) politicians and (c) people in the arts? Why do you think each of these people was selected to be featured in a portrait? 5. Explore how different art media can be used to create portraits. Ask several friends to join you in an art experiment. Together, select a person who would make a good subject for a portrait. Then have each friend create a portrait of that person using a different type of drawing tool: colored markers, crayons, watercolor or tempera paint, or a fine-point black felt pen. Compare your finished portraits. Talk about how the medium you use changes the nature of your portrait. What are the advantages of each medium? Use resource books and the Internet to look at portraits, paying attention to the art medium used to create each portrait. (standards by Dr. Sherrye D. Garrett, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi) Supersport: Cat Osterman Birthdate: Hometown: Houston The University of Texas is wishing it could find another softball pitcher just like Cat Osterman. Don t count on it. Hurlers like the Cat don t show up often at your doorstep. She just completed her college career with three National Player of the Year awards and four All-America certificates. With a repertoire of rise ball, drop ball and curve, she hurled 20 career no-hitters. As a senior this spring, Osterman posted a 38-4 record, 0.42 earned run average, and struck out 630 batters in 286 innings. Before all this, she helped the U.S. win a gold medal at the 2004 Olympics. Osterman hopes to pitch for the U.S. national team. She also wants to attend graduate school and become a softball coach. (Note to Editor: Above is the Standards for Issue 28.)
