7th Grade students completed these lovely Typography Self-Portraits. We first practiced facial proportions, and sketching the human face. After that, their final draft was drawn, and covered in sharpie. Next, a song was chosen, and lyrics to that song became the background of the project. The final step was to watercolor paint the Self-Portrait. Students had a to make a choice between warm and cool colors for the subject/background. I love the final results!
