Self portraits January 27, 2014

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 3:00 pm

First graders used 3 values to create their self portraits.  They realized that if they start with a light value to create an initial sketch, they can edit and fix a drawing with darker values.  The original light value almost disappears!  Students looked at many Modigliani portraits Students drew with markers only, no pencils.  After drawing, they painted water on top to activate the water-soluble markers and mix the colors together.
