2nd Grade Self-Portraits!

It’s that time of year again! The 2nd grade has finished their self-portraits. This project incorporates many different artistic skills. First, they learn the basic proportions of the face.


Next, they drew themselves from observation by looking in a mirror. They learned to really look and they what they saw, not what they thought they saw. They then chose their colors to reflect their own personalities, making sure to create contrast between the face and the background. Lastly, they observed highlights and shadows on their own faces and mixed their own tints and shades.
