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!
