Painting class : Self Portraits

11th and 12th grade Painting students are working on their final projects for the term : Monochromatic Self Portraits. A 2 " x 2 " grid was drawn over xeroxed portrait photographs -- using a 12" x 16" canvas , a 3" x 3" grid was drawn , to aid in enlarging the photographic image.  Students sketched their likenesses on the canvas surface prior to painting . Gesture , facial expression and color selection are all part of the choices the artists needed to decide upon before starting the assignment.
