Chuck Close Inspired Self-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 backgrounds were filled in with a texture rubbing and watercolor paint in a color scheme.
