Create a Personal Emoticon with a Simplified Self-Portrait

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.

This assessment consists of four parts:
o Part 1–Assessment Questions
o Part 2–Performance Task, Part 1—Students will draw and color a simplified self-portrait expressing an emotion.
o Part 3–Performance Task, Part 2—Students will use an online program to create a similar self-portrait expressing the same emotion.
o Part 4–Reflection—Students will respond to questions regarding their experiences drawing self-portraits with traditional and digital media.
