Self-Portraits - Student Art

Here is senior Michelle Bui looking at herself in the glass door and drawing her portrait in charcoal as a preliminary exercise before she begins her "real" self-portrait. This is the final assignment for 4th quarter in my Intermediate 2-d drawing class. Michelle nailed herself right off the bat in this prelim that I allow only one day to complete. Then she chose a recent photo of herself and worked out her actual piece that she turned in for her final grade. The students are allowed to either work from a mirror or recent photo. This year it was about half/half. They are also allowed to choose whatever 2-d media they'd like to work in for their final piece. Michelle ended up choosing pastel for hers. Hopefully my next post will show off some of the finished self-portraits.
