Art Class Portrait Project

The Upper School Art class portraits started as a study of the artist Chuck Close. Students learned how to grid a photo that they took with their phones or Chromebooks. Students were required to take a close up photo of themselves or a friend using exaggerated expression. They then enlarged the grid onto paper and followed the grid on the photo to find correct proportions and value. This was a fun study of creating character or emotion, value, and proportions.
