Kindergarten Self-Portraits

In art class kindergarteners learned that a self-portrait is art about themselves.  They learned one way to create a self-portrait is by drawing. As they worked on their self-portrait they learned 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 learned they can draw a person.  Along with shapes they also looked carefully for details.  They learned that details were things like 5 fingers on each hand, ears, eyes, and even details on clothes like patterns, buttons and pockets.  Kindergartners took their time looking for shapes and details and drew and colored themselves.  While in art class kindergarteners also shared their favorite things or favorite things to play so that we could learn more about each other. Their name and favorite thing is repeated in the back of their art.
