Chuck Close Portraits

Every year, Room 5 students get the opportunity to make a self portrait during the first trimester. These portraits remain displayed in our classroom throughout the year. We’ve been learning the techniques and art style of portrait artist, Chuck Close. After tracing the major outlines of their faces, students have chosen fun symbols to create a pattern in boxes across their face. Soon, they will be coloring the symbols with colored pencils and each will look as unique as their own face!
