High School Art : Prismatic Self Portraits

First students practiced drawing their face from life (using mirrors),  working on drawing their facial features (in correct proportion) and recreating the texture of their hair. Charcoal drawing pencils were used and shadows were added. Then students studied the work of contemporary artist Lui Ferreyra and created these images. They were inspired by Ferreyra’s style and included colorful line work that accentuates the planes of the face.
