Self Portraits March 20, 2012

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 4:00 pm

In first grade we made self portraits with marker and water. First we discussed what basic shapes create a face. Once the students had an idea about the placement of their features, they were given a light, medium, and dark marker. Part of the assignment was to figure out what areas where the lightest, and what were the darkest. Water was added at the end to create the watercolor effect you see in their final products.
