The Many Faces of South Shore Fine Arts Academy

November 19, 2011 – January 22, 2012

The Many Faces of South Shore Fine Arts Academy celebrates the students from this South Side Chicago school. Second, third, and fourth grade students learned about famous artists as inspiration for their own self-portraits. They studied works by Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo, and Vincent van Gogh. All students focused on making their self-portraits proportionate and creating facial features unique to them.
