Royal Kinders

This a new idea for this year...I don't usually do such a detailed self-portrait with my little kinders, but I found this via deepspacesparkle.com and I couldn't resist. I will say the addition of the crown template for them to trace was a great starting point.

Day one we drew with pencil and outlined with oil pastel, and today we started painting with tempera cakes...they are looking really nice!

1st Grade Self-Portraits

Each year, 1st grade starts the year with a self-portrait. This year we changed a few things....we outlined with black (looks so much better!) and we added texture rubbings to our backgrounds.

They look great!

After we added pattern backgrounds with texture plates, we painted the shirt and background with tempera cakes.
