Invite your students to make a life-sized self-portrait - on a mirror with Crayola® Washable Window Markers or Crayola Window Crayons! Use these bright colors for a glamorous effect.
Many artists have created interesting portraits and self-portraits. The difference between the two types of drawings or paintings is that a portrait is a drawing of someone else, while a self-portrait is a drawing of oneself.
Share with students Andy Warhol's portraits of Mick Jagger, completed in 1973. These drawings combine prints and line drawings. Study the line drawing portions of the portraits. Look for other examples of such artwork posted on the internet.
Andy Warhol, like other artists, looked closely at the features of the person he was drawing. To make a self-portrait, encourage students to look closely at their faces in unbreakable mirrors. Remind them that their heads must be kept very still. Ask students to trace their facial features as they see them using Crayola Washable Window Markers or Crayola Window Crayons. Only student eyes should move. In the event that a student moves his face, assist them with repositing their faces in the lines already drawn on the mirror.
When finished tracing all of their features, students add a few lines for hair, neck, and shoulders. Then step back from their portraits.
Students fill in their portraits with additional marker colors for a unique, interesting effect. To make changes, they can simply wipe off the marker color with a damp paper towel. Remind students to allow the area to dry before drawing again.
