Craft Spotlight: Stand Up Self Portraits!

Feature-Image-standupselfportraitThis week’s Craft Spotlight features our Stand Up Self Portraits! Are you gearing up for Parent-Teacher night? Or are you in need of a project that children can use to introduce themselves to each other? Perfect for “All About Me” crafts, Stand Up Self Portraits encourage children to explore self-expression and self-representation!

Stand Up Self Portraits give students the freedom to experiment with their artwork–use crayons, markers, pencil crayons or a variety of collage materials to decorate the appearance of your portrait!

IMG_7431Our crafters used markers and crayons to decorate their Stand Up Self Portraits. They used the indicators on the Stand Up Self Portrait help students locate where various facial features belong. There are six little pinprick indicators in total.

IMG_7432The two topmost indicators represent the points at which to place the eyes. Draw small circles around the indicators to represent pupils. Enclose the pupils in an almond shape to form the eyes. Add details such as eyelashes and eyebrows.

Use the middle two indicators to draw the nose. Finally, the space between the last two indicators can be used to draw the mouth.

A great way to introduce students to each other, or prepare the classroom for Parent-Teacher night!
