1st Grade Winter Self-Portraits

Winter Self-Portraits
In art class 1st graders learned the different between a portrait and a self-portrait. They learned that a portrait is art you make about other people and a self-portrait is art you make about yourself.  1st graders created winter self-portraits by drawing themselves thinking about showing an expression on their face.  They imagined showing themselves being cold, happy or even surprised.  They also had to draw winter clothing with interesting lines shapes and patterns.  They then used markers to trace and crayons to color their hair, faces and rosy cheeks.  Watercolors were then used to carefully paint their self-portraits. Finally white paint was used to splatter “snow”, making it look like they were in a winter storm or snow fight.
