Students explore mix-and-match self-portrait section of Chuck Close Face Book. Students see examples of continuous line self-portrait and other self-portrait examples.
2 Teacher Demonstration
The teacher creates example self-portrait using various artistic techniques in class. The teacher also records the process, talking through the steps as he or she works (this step may be done separately from class demonstration). The videos are then posted to YouTube and embedded in the class Haiku page for student review.
Students review self-portrait technique videos outside of class as reinforcement to class demonstration.
3 Individual Creation
Teacher takes photograph of individual students to use for self-portrait drawing on grid paper.
Students use grid paper to create pencil drawing self-portrait, paying particular attention to detail and shading properties.
Using school maker space, allow students to explore different ways to create a self-portrait.
Students manipulate continuous line drawing self-portrait by tracing photograph in Microsoft Publisher and experimenting with different effects in Microsoft PowerPoint. Students also create 3D self-portraits using a 3Doodler 3D printing pen and tracing a printed photograph.
