SOMEday.... I'll have a little more time to put my bulletin boards together. Right? :) I wish I had more prints of self portraits, I think I need to make a list of what prints are in the art room so I can see which categories I need to add to. Anyway, even though it took a long time to get all my students' self portraits finished, I got them all hung in the hallway in time for parent teacher conferences. I wanted to put up a bulletin board that would explain the assignments and ideas, show some examples from Art History (self portraits by Vincent van Gogh and Andy Warhol), and give the students reminders of what they had learned.
I will be posting about the self portraits soon, you can click on the picture to enlarge and read a description.
"I paint self portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best."
I also threw in a quote about portraits in general, because I thought it was funny, and to remind my students that their artwork doesn't have to be perfect!
"A portrait is a painting with something wrong with the mouth."
-John Singer Sargent
