First graders in room 3 & 5 had a bit of extra time with me this year (bonus of not having art on a Monday), so I decided to have them create a direct painting self portrait. Read more about this unit, and see some in action photos here. Check out the slideshows below to see the amazing details they added. I’m so proud of them, and I know these will be cherished for years to come. My plan next year is to fit it in for all first grade classes!
