Drawing I Final Project: Portraiture 

Students create a portrait of themselves or somebody they know. There are three main goals: 1) express something about your subject beyond just physical appearance, 2) incorporate stylistic elements from an artist you admire, and 3) Use the elements and principles of design to communicate your message. The goal of this project is to work towards a personal style, and to communicate an original idea through drawing. This project involves a multi-step process of idea generation, artist research, and experimentation before the final drawing is created.
