AP Art Drawing students are working on their large box self portrait project. Using color expressively they are using pastels to create a portrait that is composed by a grid format. Students work slowly to recreate the values, colors and details, never knowing if the image will line up in the end. Students have been assigned a box-per-day goal and working on their time management skills. Working this way helps students to stop thinking about whether or not it looks real or it looks like them. Rather...they are focusing on smaller part and watching the image slowly come together.
