It's the end of the year, I'm looking for some fun, along with a way to review skills, make sure the kiddos are ready for the next year, etc. So, here is my take on a Cubist-Self Portrait-Tints and Shades kinda thing. Not so sure today's class truly did their best, but Spring has sprung here in Hermitage, the bulldozers are blazing outside (to me, it's the melodious sound of a new art room a'comin) and the fact that we FINISHED them speaks volumes. :) I had each student draw a simple head and shoulders self portrait, and break it up with some lines. I gave each student a paper plate with black, white, and their favorite color. Their mission was to create as many versions of their favorite color as possible. The green one has great potential, if I can get him to finish painting in his black lines. He kinda lost focus today.
