My Self Portrait

A place for children to create a self portrait.

Print this page and explain that artists sometimes draw themselves! Look online to introduce children to famous self-portrait artists such as Vincent van Gogh, Frida Kahlo, or Pablo Picasso. Talk about what you see. Ask, “What do you notice about each picture? What colors, objects, or other people would you include in your own self portrait?”

Then children to draw themselves. You can do the same right alongside them, or switch places and draw each other!
