Portraits are a fantastic way of letting children express themselves. I never tire of working on these pieces. The unique, honest way in which children portray themselves is always refreshingly surprising, not to mention amusing. I’m yet waiting for a school brave enough to let the children paint the staff for their identification board!
I love them!
This was a year 5 class portrait, even though everyone was given the same size piece of paper the difference in scale is interesting.
Here children painted a self portrait and attached a tag to say what they were thankful for.
These children were working on their aspirations and so attached a label with their future career choice.
The children in this school attached a prayer for the year to their self portrait.
