Self Portraits

I was asked to participate in a fundraiser for our school through "Original Works". Since we are limited in size and media, I decided that it would be a good idea to have the students create a Self Portrait! I've found that often times, when asked to draw a Self Portrait, many students forget some of their features--eyebrows, ears, etc. These are great because it helps the kids to learn about drawing from observation by using a mirror and focusing on proportions, space and details. The 4th Grade students used colored pencils and watercolors to create these artworks and they are turning out GREAT across all grade levels!
