Self Portraits

The class has been busy over the last week working on a variety of self portraits. For our first one the students were simply told to draw a picture of themselves. The second one we focused on using markers that matched the color of our own skin and using mirrors to look at our features. The most recent one was a large portrait using markers and paint at the easel.

Self portraits create an important space for children to notice what makes each of us unique and what qualities we share with one another. There will be some very interesting methods coming soon to our art space as we take the next step into representing ourselves.
