Kindergarten Self Portraits

Kindergarteners did a wonderful job on this self portrait project.  The biggest problem I see across all age groups is students not making a large enough shaped face.  To solve this problem students used a stencil to create the face shape.  We did a step by step drawing as to wear all of our facial features go on our face.  Students colored them with crayon and used watercolor for the background.


  1. Hi Abby,
    I have had my ks create several self portraits during the school year as well. Love your method. Sometimes I will post the creations and ask parents to try to identify their kid. Keep on arting! Ellen

    1. That would be a fun activity to try out, I bet most parents would be able to pick their child out!
