Draw Your Self-Portrait
Portraiture has been used for centuries by various cultures to visually depict people and to show off a significant aspect or attribute of the person being represented. In this life sized self-portrait activity, encourage your child to explore what makes him special, and then portray it through art!
Creating a self-portrait is a great way for your child to increase self-awareness, build body part recognition skills, and develop fine motor abilities. Additionally, the large scale of the portrait is a fun change from the usual crayon or marker drawing.
