It all started with a selfie and Pop Art. After having a look at various portraits and the elements that make some more interesting to the viewer than others, the 6th-grade students used iPads to take their own selfie. Afterward, students created a digital contour line drawing and enlarged it using a computer program. Students redrew the contour lines on big poster paper and added black glue to the lines. In the final lesson, students looked in depth at how artists portray the light and shadows on faces. With this conversation, they set off to apply chalk pastel to their artwork.
