Self portraits are an old artistic tradition and ask the question, "Who am I?" A mirror or a photo can show someone's appearance, but people are more than what they look like on the outside. Because of this, self portraits are often considered a more accurate depiction of a person because they show what he or she is like on the inside as well. The artist carefully chooses the colors, textures, objects, pose, environment, and facial expression in his or her self portrait that will best represent his or her personality, values, and interests. For this project you will get to create your own self portrait! This WebQuest will help you get an idea of what goes into making a self portrait and provide some links to helpful information.
