Self Portraits from Photo References

The older group has spent about two weeks on their drawing unit. We practiced drawing the shapes of the face, proportions, and even measured some photographs. I took head shots of each of the students before starting the project so they would have  a reference to draw and paint from. Here are some of the finished projects.

As a closing assignment I had each student answer the following question on a slip of paper:

“Why do people draw self portraits?”
