Picking right back up from where we left off…
As you can imagine, painting clothes on a life size portrait takes a few days! After this hard work was done, the children took some time to notice the details on their clothes. They thought about how they could represent these details in their paintings and the colors and designs that would need to be chosen.
“I have sparkles on my shoes!”
“I’m going to paint my snowflake!”
After adding any details to clothing and shoes, the children began the final step in painting their self portraits. The children looked through many different shades, finding the one that they thought best represented their skin.
“I think this looks like me!” “This one would be just right. It matches my skin.”
“This matches my hands.”
After many, many days of hard work and perseverance, the life size paint portraits were finished! The children are so proud of their work, and have been excited about displaying their work in the classroom and hallways. I wonder if you can find your Sky Class student.
