Warm and Cool Color Self-Portraits

The 4-6 classes began the year with these vibrant self-portraits! We began by drawing a proportional and realistic self-portrait during the first class. Next, we outlined the portrait with crayons and created detailed patterns for the background. Students needed to do the designs on half the page with warm colors (red, yellow and orange) and use cool colors (blue, green and violet) on the other half. We finished them off with watercolor paints and continued the warm/cool color scheme. The results are fantastic and show a lot of personality!
