To get to know oneself better, from both the physical and emotional point of view, learning to express feelings through artistic creation.
Pencils, 100 x 70 cm sheets of plasterboard, projector, camera, tempera paints and paintbrushes.
- The students are set the challenge of painting a self-portrait showing what they’re really like.
- Close-up photographs are taken of each student.
- Each of the photographs is projected so that the students can trace their pictures using a pencil and transfer it in larger size onto a sheet of hardboard.
- The projection is used to achieve a schematic reproduction of the image, avoiding details, marking areas of light and shadow.
- To make these drawings into real self-portraits, they must be filled with content.
- Within the self-portrait, the students write words that describe them.
- Outside, they write words that define their fears or concerns.
- The light parts, which correspond to the prominent areas of the portrait, are filled with words referring to the positive aspects of their personality.
- The portrait is completed with tempera paint.
