Why do you think artists paint self-portraits? (students will give answers in class)

Classwork: Do a ³Blind´ self-portrait ± Don¶t look at yourself in a picture or a mirror when you draw it. Do it all from memory. Take your time. Give it your best shot. Remember the hair, eyes, eyelids, eyelashes, eyebrows, nose, mouth, lips, ears, forehead lines, any marks or scars«

Homework (sort of)
‡ Bring a 8 ½ X 11 paper sized picture of yourself next week. We will do a selfportrait ± hopefully with paint.
