Value – Self Portrait Collage

Self-Critique Questions

In a Word Processor (MS Word, Google Docs, etc...) answer the questions below:
Is the portrait occupying the whole area of the composition?
Are all 9 values from your value scale present?
Has a broad value scale been established?
Does the portrait break each value into a flat plane?
Was the grid properly utilized to locate the correct placement of all shapes and values to maintain the facial proportions?
Have you avoided outlining facial features?
Has the final design been executed in a professional manner? Designs should utilize the designated materials with care, effort, and attention to detail. This includes proper mounting to Bristol Board.


Artwork Documentation

Document the final project (scan or photograph the artwork) at 300ppi and upload it to your WordPress e-portfolio.


Writing Assignment

Back to the Word Processor write a paragraph about your artwork based on your the answers to the self-critique questions above. Do not include the actual questions. Use correct grammar and spelling. Refer to the assigned readings, presentations and vocabulary words to help you with proper use of the vocabulary. (150 word minimum.)

As a writing technique, I suggest you answer each question in full. Once you are done, read the answers aloud. Then create connections between the answers to create one full paragraph.


E-Portfolio Notes

I recommend that you type this as a word document and save it before pasting it into your e-portfolio.

Add your writing assignment to your e-portfolio on the same page as the image of your project.

Label both the image and the below writing assignment with the project number and title: Project 7: Value – Self Portrait Collage.

Both the image & the writing assignment should be uploaded to your Wordpress e-portfolio BEFORE the due class!

Take note of when the classroom is open and available for you to use the computers and/or scanners.
