4th graders learned about the proportions of a face and created their own self-portraits through observation and the use of face mapping. The students then used bright vivid patterns in the background of their portraits just like contemporary artist Kehinde Wiley. Kehinde Wiley is well known for his hyper realistic portraits and bright patterned backgrounds.
