Chuck Close Inspired Art

This assignment was a little more involved than what my students have been used to this year.  

For this one they drew a picture of something/someone with pencil and the shaded it to look realistic.  Then lightly colored each square with colored pencils to look like a Chuck Close artwork.  

 For this one pencils where not used for shading.  This student just colored the entire project with colored pencils.

Flexibility is a huge word in my classroom.  It started out to be a Chuck Close gridded project, but ended up to look like this.  This student drew a picture of her and her twin sister.  When she brought it back to school with wrinkles throughout the tagboard from rolling it up too tight.  We decided to make the wrinkles look like they were meant to be there.  So we burnt the edges of the paper, and a few spots in the middle.  Then she painted it with tea to make it look antiqued.  I was very happy with how it turned out!
