This diploma thesis presents the proposal for a project-based learning approach to teaching Visual arts to secondary school students, specifically dealing with the topic of self-portrait and selfie. This eight-week long project-based learning unit comprises four student presentations, a visit to the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb, preparation of material gathered during the course and preparation of a presentation of the project, concluded with the presentation of the project itself during the last week. These interdisciplinary lessons will discuss the history, characteristics and the causes behind the emergence of self-portraits and selfies. Lessons will be backed by diverse approaches and teaching methodology. Through active participation in every part of the project-based learning unit and the completion of assigned tasks, the students will develop creativity, acquire communication, cooperative, research and critical thinking skills, as well as basic and advanced understanding of the self-portrait and selfie, along with the knowledge about their importance and meanings. .
