5th Grade Self Portraits



5th grade just finished a project based on the work of Chuck Close.  Close creates huge portraits that show all details of the subject.  Students also learned that Chuck Close is now paralyzed and does not have full use of his arms.  He has overcome many challenges, but still makes incredible artwork.  Each 5th grade student worked from a digital photograph in order to make realistic self portraits.
