Create a Personal Emoticon with a Simplified Self-Portrait
In the constructed-response section of this assessment, students will use traditional media to create a simplified self-portrait that expresses an emotion. In the performance task portion of the assessment, they will use a free online drawing program to create a similar self-portrait that expresses the same emotion. In their reflections, students will write responses to four questions regarding the use of traditional and digital media to create similar works of art.
The purpose of this performance task is to assess the students’ ability to move between traditional and digital media as they express their creativity and demonstrate the expressive use of color and line.
