Pop Art Self Portraits











I felt I was overdue for a self portrait lesson with some of my younger students. My kinder and 1st graders created a pop art series of self portraits. After following a simple line drawing lesson, they darkened their lines with permanent marker. I scanned these drawings on thick card stock, giving each child 4 copies. They were only given 4 colors of acrylic with which to create 4 unique color combinations. After dry the lines were gone over again to create a graphic look. The above pieces were created by kindergarteners and 1st graders.
