More Self-Portraits!

What is your skin color?

It has become a tradition at my school now that I start the year with self-portrait lessons because the final projects become the covers of each student’s portfolio in time for the first student led conferences with parents.

So what kind of projects are happening in Ms. Ale’s class these days? Everything from giant cardboard self-portraits , white board practice portraits, portraits of a friend, Chuck close inspired self-portraits and much more. Stop by later this month to see the finished projects. So far, the kids are having a blast and I am loving teaching them!

Take a look at these other self-portrait lessons I have  put together into an e-book you can download  here.
