Last week, friends added finishing touches to their self portraits! Children used additional drawing materials to draw on top of the liquid watercolors once they had dried. Friends studied their faces in mirrors and compared them to their self portraits. Many children realized that they forgot important features and added them to make the portraits even more realistic!
Asa: I forgot to paint all my face! I’ll color the rest in.
Anival: Why do I look like a monkey alien? Oh well. But I did make my beautiful legs.
Leah: Mouth? I forgot my mouth!
Amie: I added some pink around my mouth. The color red is on my shirt so I’m making it red. And I made two sleeves. I made Jessica with me. She’s my sleeping friend that I brought to school!
Adrian: I forgot to do my legs, and my underwear, and my pants, and my shoes.
Adele: My hair is light brown with golden. And I need to add light pink to my mouth.
Ava: I love my face. See? This is my face!
Nanahi: I add a little bit of skin.
Hope: First I did my hair blue, but I actually need to make it dark.
Ahmari: Brains are under our skin. Let me make my brain.
Nora: I drew my pink pants and I changed my pants to white because I’m wearing white pants today.
Connor: There’s love in your heart. And your heart is under your skin so you don’t need to draw it.
Dayana: I’m drawing a rainbow dropping on me. It feels like wet rain falling on my head.
Frances: I can make “WW” for my Wonder Woman shirt.
Kaylee: I’m making my dress red and sparkly.
Bella: I forgot to add my hands!
Theo: I see a small part of red in my eyes. And white on both sides around the blue. Now… my buttons. They are brown and grey. My shoes… wait, where are my shoes? I forgot them but they are grey and green. I didn’t draw my feet because they’re inside my shoes.
Africa Grace: I need to use white to make my leggings.
Emely: I’m making me in my own color!
Maya: I forgot to leave my teeth white. And I only drew my bottom teeth!
Kyrie: I have to make my eyes darker brown. And I need to add white to them!
Uhura: I need more peach on my cheeks.
Jax: I need my eyes to be brown. And my boogers.
