Art Lesson Plan: Cultural Self Portraits

Art Lesson Plan: Cultural Self Portraits | Themes in Art Education - Identity | Scoop.it

"In this portrait project, you will depict yourself as a member of a tribe of which you are not actually a member. You will work from a digital photograph of yourself as well as images that are taken from an actual tribe, such as the Maasai, the Zulus, etc. Research the tribe you wish to identify with. By adding features such as piercings, tattoos, body adornments, hairstyles, etc. that are indicative of that tribe, you will become a “member” in your drawing. Why do you identify with that particular cultural group? What do you admire about these people?"

This project will need some furthe class discussion to ensure that students fully understand the tribe and functions of the body onamentations and so that the cultures themselves are not margenalized.  The concept is a good one and can be altered to fit a variety of portrait or cultural topics.
