7th grade oil pastel self portraits

Seventh Grade art students from the 1st Trimester learn to enlarge and draw photos of themselves. I took photos of each student with their hand close to their face. The students could choose their pose and facial expressions. They then were required to add color and shading to their face. We talk about and viewed some Fauve style paintings and the color choices we have available to us as well. For some of them, it is tough to get away from choosing realistic colors. We always have to be open to new possibilities!
