Chuck Close Inspired Portraits

Here is the latest round of Chuck Close style portraits done in oil pastel by the 7th and 8th grade International Academy students! We drew out a grid over photographs of the students and then created a larger scale grid over a 12" x 18" paper. After students transferred the information to complete a proportional drawing, we used our knowledge of value to shade with oil pastels. The background patterns were made with the complementary color clash to make the portraits really pop!
