I love this project!! In fact, I tell the kids that this is one project that their kids will do. As a warm-up, we paint a 20 step value scale in one color. Then, I take their pictures with a dinosaur of a digital camera (I can't find a new camera with "Solarize" as a setting). We print the pictures in black and white. Then, the kids sketch their portraits using a grid system to enlarge them 3 times the original size. Once the drawing is done, the kids paint them using their monochromatic value scale to assist. Shown are some of the best from last trimester.
