The self portrait is integral in art history. Artists have drawn, photographed, and painted themselves for years. What better model to use than oneself? We will study the self portrait and how it relates to art history, and also fashion design.
Your task is to create an embroidered self portrait using both hand stitching and sewing machine techniques. Be creative with this project; the objective is not to finish with a perfectly recognizable portrait. You should work with shapes, lines, colors, and patterns to create a fun and interesting self portrait while simultaneously learning how to use the sewing machine.
