Getting Ready for our Self Portraits

Process of Self Portraits

Take a photo of the children.  Make sure the photo is an extreme close up.  Print photo.  Place photo up on a window.  Trace the main lines.  For younger children I do this part.  Enlarge the drawing to A3.  On an A3 laminating pocket trace the main lines of portrait onto the outside of the pocket.  With a black vivid children to colour in their hair, eye brows, eye (leave 2 little white circles clear) and lips.  Paint an A3 paper using different tones of one colour. Talk about texture and the colour wheel.  Use sponge to paint with and fork for texture,  Glue on brown paper and old paper on, so you can create layers of texture for your face.
