Here's an assignment that I give Art 3 students. They are required to research a culture of their choosing and create a composite drawing that includes a self-portrait adorned in clothing, jewelry, make-up, etc. from that culture. Here are a few from this past year.
Arely chose ancient Greece. She also decided to include a pop of color.
Eddie chose to research the Aztec culture.
Here is Wynn as a Roman Gladiator.
Selena is a beautiful Egyptian Queen.
I love Usu's body language in his Japanese portrait.
