Self Portraits: Text Art

Part 2 of Self Portraits

🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV is open for new memberships through January 19th, 2024. Join today!


Students will create a self-portrait using adjectives that describe themselves.

In this art lesson, students should:

  1. Complete the first self-portrait activity.
  2. Select 3 - 5 adjectives (perhaps as an acrostic poem)
  3. Outline their self-portrait using the adjectives

Encourage them to explore different techniques: size, shape, and thickness of letters. Color is optional but could be another fun effect. Optional: use different colored pens to add an extra effect

The registration window closes on January 19th, 2024
