Chuck Close Self Portraits- analogous colors

LOVE IT!!!!  I found this idea from the site:  She is an amazing teacher.  I then took photos of all the students in 6th grade, went to another site to change the photo's into drawings.  The kids took their portrait, outlined it with a thin sharpie marker and traced it to a half sheet of paper.  We then drew a grid overtop of our portrait with a ruler.  The students drew different designs inside each grid.  Then we used analogous colors (colors very similar- next to each other on the color wheel) to color our portraits.
I really enjoyed this project!!!
