Peculiar Personal Portraits

Broken Portrait example by Corinne Mucha

by Corinne Mucha

About this Activity

What can a drawing capture about you that a photograph cannot? In this project, we explore a variety of techniques for producing a surrealist, expressive self-portrait. After looking at works by Enrico Baj, Suellen Rocca, and Karl Wirsum for inspiration, students can use whatever drawing tools they have on hand to practice new ways of mark-making before producing one large final drawing.

These activities and projects are best for fourth to sixth graders.
