• Drawing a Self-Portrait

    For your summer assignment in Art I, I will ask you to draw a self-portrait. You will need a mirror, a pencil, unlined paper, and an eraser. 

    You will not need to do this all in one sitting. In fact, I would prefer that you work on this portrait for 30 minutes at a time. Each time you sit down to work on your portrait I want to you to ask yourself three questions:

    *How can I improve this picture?
    *What can I change to make the picture more like me? 
    *Am I using my pencil to its full potential (very lightest marks - to very darkest marks)?

    You will need to bring your portrait during the first week of school

    I can't wait to meet you and see your portraits!
