Colored portraits

Self portraits form the Intro and Beginning kids. I asked them to use bright colors other than skin tones to represent themselves. The pastels seemed to have given a number of my kids trouble. Everyone had mastered drawing themselves with pencil but when it came to using those soft pastels, the students had more difficulty blending colors to create dark and light tones. Again, this is a big learning experience for both myself as a teacher and to the students. For the most part, I think the portraits turned out great. Each student has a unique drawing and coloring style
