Chuck Close, graphite and charcoal close ups

From Grid Self Portraits -ART I

Middle School self-portraits. The agony, the arguments, and sometimes surprised and pleased outcomes for students. Basing our lesson on the technical portraits of Chuck Close, students enlarged a black and white photograph to three times it's original size. Students worked one square at a time, allowing them to concentrate on values in each fragment rather than making the overall paper 'look good.'
