Art of the Week – Self Portrait

I think this is pretty self-explanatory!

The kids all had mirrors in front of them, and the lesson really focused on symmetry and features.  Tad did have a couple of rough moments, according to his teacher, but he worked through it!  The initial sketch was done in pencil, traced over in fine tip Sharpie, and then colored in with chalk pastels.

Next week is our last week of art lessons until fall!  I really wish he could do one of the art camps over the summer, but of course they are all during his big day camp commitment.  (More on that soon.)  But he will be back with his art teacher once school starts again!
