A Close call

Since my art 1 classes are working at record speed, (not sure if that is all good) I thought I would add a Chuck Close style picture to our lessons.  Now I added this project only to have mother nature throw a blizzard at us, so needless to say most of the students are not yet done with this project. 

Why aren't they done you might ask, well before the blizzard hit I had booked our multipurpose room for our artistic mini golf course made out of cardboard (thanks Apex for that one).  Well when we finally got back to school I had to race through the Close project so that we could start the cardboard sculptured golf course last week so it could be ready by this week.  So I will let them finish these projects at the end of this week and turn them in without a penalty.  In the meantime, I thought i would show you a few of the better finished ones.

Since at the time of this assignment we had all sorts of time, I wanted them to do shapes in all of the squares and I was letting them have choices about medium and colors, and in the end I kind of let anything go.  As long as it somewhat resembled a Chuck Close style picture I was happy.

  1. I like Danica's drawing because its simple, but she adds different colors without having it look too overwhelming.
