Art teacher Stephanie Gordon writes: Students prepared for "A Life-Sized Portrait from Direct Observation" by spending the first quarter learning different drawing techniques. They studied the figure and learned to draw the parts of the body and head: eyes, nose, mouth, ears, hair, hands and feet. Then students spent about four and a half weeks of class time drawing their life-sized portraits. At the end of the semester we put the pencil portraits on exhibit in the art studio.

The three smaller drawings are from self-portrait assignments in a Design class.
