Fundraiser Self-Portrait

BIC Markers are my new favorite media, especially now that the multi-packs include lots of skin tones. The students create their self-portraits on dry wax paper and then mount them on a stretched canvas.
1. My sample is made on a stretched on a 4” x 5” canvas. Students center and trace a 3.25" x 4" cardboard stencil on dry wax paper. They draw a large oval for the face, and continue by adding neck, shoulders, and features on the face.
2. Once completed, the students trace the pencil drawing with a permanent black marker and fill in the rest with more colors.
3. The students carefully cut out their drawing around the outer rectangle.
4. Set up a glue station equipped with brushes and a 50/50 solution of white glue and water. The students apply the solution to their canvases and to the backs of their portraits. They then center their portraits on the canvas and brush over them to smooth and seal.
