First Grade Self Portraits!

The first graders started off the school year by creating self-portraits.  They examined their faces in the mirror and learned techniques to help them get the proportions corrects when drawing a portrait.  So many of them look like the students themselves and they are all very expressive!  The last step was the color application, and each child was able to choose between crayon and oil pastel.  These images are located in the school near the entrance to the kindergarten pod.
