Many “selves”

I find portraits to be tricky.  Perhaps that’s because I don’t do them often, or I favor a more cartoon style with gigantic eyes.  Either way I wanted to teach the children the basics on self-portraits so I turned to Deep Space Sparkle for help.  She teaches portraits in a way that breaks down the basics.  Eye spacing, lip width, hair lines, you name it.  She was my assistant teacher for this class.  😉 And because portraits aren’t challenging enough, we used chalk pastels to color them.

The results were amazing!  I’m getting ready to hang them, without names. They ended up being that accurate and the children want to show off their pieces.
