I created this PowerPoint presentation to help introduce a self-portrait project. I use it as a quick introduction, explaining the difference between a regular portrait and a self-portrait while showing the students a variety of ways portraits can be created. The students get to view classic, well-known self-portraits along with more modern ones, and from different mediums like Photographs, Collage, Photorealistic and Non-representational. The presentation also discusses what we can tell about a person and/or the artist from the portraits/self-portraits.
This is a great introduction to Self-Portraits; a presentation that captivates the students with engaging images from various portrait artists. This is also an excellent way to incorporate the common core into your art classroom.
