Opening Header

After working on several exercises designed to improve their perception, students are given the opportunity to stare at themselves in a mirror for up to four weeks, everyday. During this process of self-reflection they are constantly reminded to try and remain objective. This ensures that they are drawing mostly shapes, lines, and varying degrees of light and dark reflections (shades of gray) and not noses, ears, eyes, mouths, etc. The result of this effort almost always produces a realistic representation of their faces.

Due to the large volume of self-portraits, this wing of the ArtSpace gallery has been broken down futher, with each separate section containing approximately ten pictures.
