Last Thursday, we scheduled a session of self-portraits in my Figures and Faces Acrylics class. What fun it was! I bought ten stand-up mirrors from the Dollar Store, and told the students that yes, they needed to plan on sketching a relatively good likeness of themselves first, and then, to get creative with their painting of self portraits ... bring hats, change the geometry of their likeness, use unusual color combinations, etc. My students have such a great attitude and willingness to try anything and everything, that indeed several brought in hats, and chose to paint very creative compositions. The results were wonderful, and made us all smile!
