Pixelated Portrait

Students first drew a self-portrait from observation.  Then students traced their work onto graph-paper while trying to stay on the paper's pre-existing graph.  By doing this, students were able transform their organic self-portrait into a "pixelated"version of themselves.

Space Scene

Students used oil pastels to create a scene from outer space while focusing on creating the illusion of a shaded sphere.  Each student's piece connected in order to make a mural in the stairwell.
