Contour Line Self-Portraits!

For the next lesson in this unit, the students were asked to use the tabletop mirrors to look closely at themselves and draw a self-portrait.  They drew with a pencil and tried their best to use one continuous contour line.  When the portraits were drawn they outlined the pencil with a black sharpie marker and erased any pencil that was peeking out from under the marker line. The students enjoyed drawing themselves, and they really concentrated on doing a great job since it was a portrait that represented them! 
This picture shows Madison P. using the mirror to create an accurate representation of her image on the tan chipboard.  Madison's finished self-portrait will be included in a future post, so be sure to look for it!
