Abstract Portraits

For our first class, we looked at the artwork of Jean Dubuffet, French painter and sculptor.

He said, “What I expect from any work of art is that it surprises me.”  Our challenge was to create self-portraits that surprise!  I showed everyone how to draw a self-portrait with correct proportions, and then how to use line, shape, color, and pattern to abstract those proportions into a unique and expressive artwork.
