Almost 1 month into the school year already!
Here is what my 7th and 8th grade students were up to this week!
7th Grade finished up their Typography Self-Portraits (seen below, click to enlarge) using an analogous color scheme for the foreground, and the opposite analogous scheme for the background, which included lyrics of their choice. This is a project I do every year with 7th graders, and I love the result time and time again.
Up next - HOMECOMING WEEK!
More details on the week ahead HERE.
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!
