Tweens and Teens Emotional Self Portrait Class

19 tween and teen campers from Paradise Farms Camp came to do a special class with me - Emotional Self Portraits! We talked about famous artist portraits such as Romare Bearden and Andy Warhol, how emotions look, color choices that evoke certain emotion, how to draw the human head — it's proportions/formulas and finally we went over materials we could use for our own portraits. We used pencils, oil pastel, acrylic paint, watercolor, cut up magazines, yarn, papers and more. Check out how great they did in such a short time of 2 hours. Pretty amazing stuff:)
