Face to face


The home-school art class at The Art Junction explored creating  self-portraits.

The students explored using many different mediums as they built skills in creating a self-portrait.

Students also used tempera and brushes as well as pencil and marker to draw themselves using basic shapes  for the human form.

A self-portrait is a representation of an artist, drawn, painted, photographed, or sculpted by the artist.

Although self-portraits have been made by artists since the earliest times, it is not until the Early Renaissance in the mid 15th century that artists can be frequently identified depicting themselves as either the main subject, or as important characters in their work. With better and cheaper mirrors, and the advent of the panel portrait, many painters, sculptors and printmakers tried some form of self-portraiture.

  2. I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up
    the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one today.
