Self Portraits, I'm a proud mama
Ok, I can't express how impressed I am with how these turned out!! My 7th graders did an AWESOME job.
Process= We all drew portraits of President Obama and learned about observation, facial proportions, shading, etc. THEN, I photographed each student (letting each kid preview their pic : / ) and printed from my computer printer in black and white. The background was supposed to tell the viewer about the artist's family and self.
And the 2nd one started as "Man, I'm finished" (when it clearly wasn't) refusing my proddings to continue working and blossomed into a work of art during the resulting lunch detention. LOL. The result? We are both happy!
