One of the most popular art genres through time, portraiture, Rembrandt takes the lead with 100 self-portraits including 40 paintings, 31 etchings, and seven drawings.  Of Frida Kahlo's 143 paintings, 55 of them were self-portraits.  Van Gogh painted 30 portraits of himself.  Within his 75-year career as an artist, Picasso also painted 30 portraits of himself.

Practice shading and the Element of Value, to create the illusion of depth.  Apply that skill to practice drawing facial features: eyes, noses, mouths, and ears, and put them together to create a self-portrait.

Shape a plaster-gauze mold of your face as an acrylic sub-straight to create a dramatic wearable art piece.
