NSCD upper school visual arts students enrolled in the mark-making class created grided self-portraits. Using a range of graphite pencils, students worked methodically, one square at a time, left to right, row by row to achieve their final self-portraits. While everyone used the same process, each portrait has its own unique mark-making style.

Take 10 Play Festival
