Second Grade Self-Portraits 3 Ways
In this lesson, the students explored self-portraits. They had the opportunity to make self-portraits 3 different ways. First, they learned how to draw a realistic self-portrait and the basics of facial proportions. Next, we looked at work by Pablo Picasso and discussed the characteristics of his cubist portraits. They created their own cubist self-portrait. Finally, they worked with model magic to create a relief sculpture of themselves. These were all mounted together to create a complete series.
