Original lesson from Pinterest link below. Unfortunately a website is not available. Self Portrait Lesson Idea -- The Catch: Choose a different culture, religion, ethnicity, and /or time period other than your own.
Instead of choosing from the list above I had students choose a portrait from history. They removed the original face and replaced it with their own.
I can't say it was a favorite project among students but I sure do think they turned out exceptional. Students used soft and oil pastels.
