Expressive Self Portraits June 6, 2013

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 8:39 pm

3rd graders love the nickname I give to this project- big heads.  After learning the basics of a self portrait, the students are challenged one step further by drawing themselves with a different facial expression.  Students chose expressions ranging from excited to bored to angry to silly.  They drew heads much larger than life size and colored with chalk pastels.  One of the goals with the pastels was to blend and smudge multiple colors together to create shadow values and highlight values.
