Self Portraits + Self Esteem Sequins

As an artist and art educator, I’ve realized that art can have countless interpretations and a powerful impact, especially on the young.  The students passed “sequins” to themselves with this project by being prideful of their unique characteristics.

The students researched a famous portrait painter, put together a keynote about their selected artist and presented it to the class.  As a class, we discussed the meaning and history of the Self Portrait.  We used an online program to alter their photos, posterized the image and added a tint.  They based their painting off of the photo.  Each student selected a background that would compliment their work and express who they are.  All the students involve did a fantastic job!!
