Hero Portraits (2007)

Students studied the artwork of Chuck Close and his stylized use of grids within his portrait paintings. Students chose someone they considered a "hero" to be the subject of their portrait. The created one inch grids and enlarged a photo to 16x 20. Each square needed to be filled with line designs while capturing the varying shades and contour lines of the face.
