Product Description
This is a really cheap, quick introduction assignment that can be assigned during the first week of class.
It creates beautiful artworks that can be displayed/kept up in your art room or display cases all year round.

I use it with my senior grades - to get them thinking creatively and working right off the bat.

It asks them to create a self-portrait using just their own EYES as the subject matter.
I give them small rectangular cut wood pieces (very cheap!) to work on, but it could easily be done on paper or bristol.

I let them use whatever materials to create it - whatever we have in our art room / they have at home to use. This way it pushes them to use mixed media. I've had students use a wood burner / actual makeup / charcoal / glitter / all SORTS of cool materials for this one. They really get creative.

The handout goes through:
-the assignment
-the parts of an eye (a helpful, quick breakdown)
-a rubric for both the artwork AND a reflection, where they create an introduction to an artist statement around their artwork
(this is a fill-in-the-blank guide, that really helps them get writing about their artwork right from the start - a skill that we build on all year).

Of course you could not include this as an evaluation, but the rubric is there in case you wish to do so.

They really enjoy this!
It's a quick way to get some fantastic artworks up on the walls!
