The children seemed to enjoy drawing their Dads so much we thought it would be a great time to introduce the idea of the self portrait.
We showed the children self portraits done by some famous artists. We talked about our faces, we all have eyes, a nose and a mouth and yet we all look different.
We set up mirrors as a provocation.
This week we starting talking about "line leaders". Some of our older friends modeled the responsibilities of the line leader for the children who are new to our class. We used our copier to make the self portraits smaller so we can use them on our line leader mobile.
Please look for it in our red room.
The full size portraits are hanging in our kitchen.
