Art Projects

This years COL Project, will be completing a colored pencil portrait on 12x16in paper.  The portrait reference should be gridded and students should be able to show that their drawing is proportional to their reference photo.  Pencil lines should be light as to not show through the colored portion of their picture. The colored pencil values that are applied should be similar to the reference and show highlights as well as shadows.  Backgrounds do not have to be as they are in the reference, but they should not be blank.

Students will be presenting their portraits in class, completing a detailed reflection about their project and a peer art critique.  The entire project is worth 90 points.
