Check out our Monochromatic Portraits!

Welcome Back!  For the first two weeks of school the students created Monochromatic Portraits.  Monochromatic means containing or using only one color or one group of colors.   I first saw this idea on the blog - smART Class.  It was the perfect way to begin the new school year.  The portraits were drawn on 5X8", unlined index cards.  Students started by drawing in pencil, then they used crayons, markers and colored pencil to add color.  To complete the project - ALL the self portraits (over 500) were displayed in color order - it made for quite the exhibit!  It was hard to walk past without stopping and looking at all the amazing work!  Enjoy the video below!
