Hairspray is NOT archival!
“I definitely learned to be satisfied with a color palette that isn’t totally ‘natural looking.’ Having only a 15 pack of Caran D’Ache crayons and no flesh tones made me look harder for colors I wouldn’t have seen before.
Although portraiture was something I’ve done a lot in the past, drawing an image for this course had a refreshing spin on it, because I would periodically mentally check back to Prof Lieu’s videos and apply that to my work.”
“It had been a while since I have worked with crayon, so it was really exciting to be able to work with it again! It was a bit challenging getting used to the media again though, especially when trying to create something so specific like a self portrait.
When I make portraits, I tend to obsess over achieving likeness that sometimes I will mess up a piece without realizing it, so it was nice to have the lesson format to follow to help myself stay on track. This was a fun project and I’m happy with my final piece!”
“For me I always find self-portraits extremely difficult because you’re constantly confronting yourself as you draw. This course helped me think of the face as a series of abstract shapes and layers. To be able to create a piece from the Khan Academy equivalent for art was really cool!
I wish I had this while I was in high school and was making my portfolio to apply for art school!”
