CHUCK CLOSE FACE BOOK

"What made you start to draw?"
"Why are your paintings so big?"
"Why do you only paint faces?"

Real kids ask Chuck Close questions about his portraits, his life, and how he became an artist. His answers reveal a fascinating story. A discussion of his larger-than-life portraits and an examination of the many artistic processes he uses round out this engaging autobiography of one of America's most highly regarded artists. 

A section of mix-and-match self-portraits by Chuck Close displays a variety of the artist's techniques. Readers can rearrange the portraits to create their own new and interesting combinations!
