Transcript of 2D Drawing Portrait Project

Portrait: A portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person
Portrait Project...you pick!
You will have the option to create one of two portrait projects.

basic requirements for each:
-plan, research and practice first
-realistically render a face
-express a specific idea, concept, emotion
Project 1: Headdress Expressive Portrait
"Headgear, headwear or headdress is the name given to any element of clothing which is worn on one's head."
Project 2: Juxtaposition Portrait
Artist Examples...
Frida Kahlo, "Self-Portrait as Tehuana or Diego on my Mind" (1943)
Scottish Pipers
Japanese Geisha
Nemes Headdress of Ancient Egypt
Akha Tribe
Hmong Flower Tribe
How does the headdress reflect the culture, interests and values of the wearer?
Are they functional or decoration?
Or both?
Real World Examples...
Stephanie Kubo, California
Erik Jones
If you pick this project...

1) Research different cultures, artists and ideas...
2) Decide WHO you will draw, and WHY.
3) Decide what the elaborate "headdress" will represent. It should relate to the person you are drawing! Collect images and resources!
4) Make a 8.5"x11" thumbnail sketch to get an idea how your final drawing will look. You may collage for this!
Similar to Project 1, but a different approach.

You will pick a portrait of someone you know, and then think of an animal or image that is MEANINGFUL to that person in some way...

Then you cut and weave the 2 images together to create a juxtaposed portrait in the gridded format.
