1st Grade Self-Portraits

1St Grade Self-Portraits
In art class 1st Graders reviewed that a self-portrait is art about themselves.  They remembered that one way to create a self-portrait is by drawing. As they worked on their self-portrait they remembered how to look for shapes in things that they are drawing.  They looked for circles, ovals, rectangles, squares, and other shapes.  By putting different shapes together they can draw a person and a person’s clothes.  Along with shapes they also looked carefully for details.  They collaged tissue paper for a background and glued their self-portrait to their collaged paper. Then they came up with things about themselves. They had to think about things they like, love, don’t like, who they are and what they want to be.  They used these ideas about themselves and wrote them all around the outsides of their self-portrait.
