Students were given the difficult observational drawing challenge of drawing not only a face but a crumbled face.
Students chose faces from magazine sources and crumbled the images to warp the images and fracture the view. The end results challenged the students in capturing shadows, value, subtle color changes and the warped perspective. There is a definite Cubist influence in our finished images as many are broken or left with disjointed features.
Congratulations to our SCIS students for their perseverance in sticking with the challenge to the end with wonderful success!

Other art teachers were inspired by my initial post of the drawing challenge including former students. I am sure my students will love seeing all the results of this difficult drawing challenge and congratulate all in their efforts!
A fellow art teacher in my PLN shared her students' efforts in her blog today: Way to go Ms Campbell's students!
