Mesmerizing Self-Portraits!

Today the Kindergartners and 1st Graders finished their self-portraits. The portraits are absolutely spectacular! They are unique because, after mixing colors to get their skin tones, the children pasted on photographs of their actual eyes and then used oil pastels for their other features. We talked a lot about drawing faces accurately, and we used mirrors to help us draw exactly what we saw, not just what we thought faces should look like. The photographed eyes really bring these self-portraits to life.
