CBS This Morning: Artist Chuck Close writes note to younger self

8th Graders watched this video clip this morning.

Famed portrait artist Chuck Close writes a letter to himself at age 14, offering himself advice on how to overcome his learning disabilities and his problem with face blindness.

Great 5 minute video. It shows a variety of Chuck Close’s portraits and especially the ones done in small squares, which is the style that the 8th grade is doing in their own self-portraits. (Breaking a larger problem down into manageable bit-size pieces as Chuck Close says)
