The pictures above show projects that have started the drying process. Once slightly dry, students can start piercing them, and adding small details to make them more unique. After they are fully dry, I will fire them in the kiln. After being fired once , they will be ready to be glazed!
I cannot wait for results like this image (pictured left).
I am enjoying how the Self-Portraits are coming along so much that I had to post some works in progress.
After the students are finished painting (like the example on the top left), the last and final step is to outline the facial details in black sharpie marker to make them stand out. I love this project!!
Currently the Drawing/Painting class is creating self-portraits based on the unique artist Chuck Close.
Chuck Close is famous for his wonderful portraits with a unique Grid Enlargement process used to create them after he was paralyzed in 1988. The projects should be completed by the end of the week.
The first images below are examples I showed the class to get an idea of the final look of the project. Below that are works in progress from class today.
Projects should be completed by the end of this week or early next week.
