A child’s self-portrait can reveal many things.
As with any drawing, it shows the development of a child’s fine motor, observation and focusing skills.
But it also can give insight into a child’s self-concept.
In other words, it’s the best way for a grown-up to see a child through that child’s own eyes.
How do these little ones perceive and represent themselves?
For this activity, your little one created a self-portrait using a mirror and watercolors!Using the mirror as their canvas, students looked upon their reflections and painted what they saw.
