Self-Portraits


One of my FAVORITE art projects of the year = 






my kindergarten students' self-portraits. 

They are absolutely beautiful to me. 
These bright faces are displayed front and center for the rest of the year. They are a reminder of the wonderful learning community that we have created. 


This idea came from Ann Marie Corgill's book:

Students create these by drawing in pencil first, add color with oil pastels, and fill in the background with liquid watercolor. 



The students are SO proud of these!


CLICK PLAY!!! It will make you smile! : )
