Chuck Close Self-Portraits

Recently, my 4th grade students finished their self-portraits inspired by Chuck Close.  They began the project by drawing their portrait free hand.  After they were pleased with the basic outline of their self-portrait, students saw a brief
demonstration on how to create appealing, small spaces that exhibit settle differences in design.  When the demonstration was finished, they began applying marker to their face and neck using Crayola's Multicultural Markers.  When students completed their skin, they added color to their hair.  They had the choice of adding any color scheme to their background and shoulders, and finished their project by using Crayola Thin Tip Markers for their facial features.  They turned out amazing!
