Observational drawing and painting gives children the opportunity to notice details, deepen their understanding, and fosters inquisitiveness.
Recently the children used mirrors to begin their first observational self-portraits. They were done over a few days, step by step.
The children first traced their face, eyes, noes, and mouth with their fingers.
The second step was to use their finger to “draw” on the paper what they traced.
Finally with flair pen in hand, they carefully created the shapes as they had planned.
It all started in worship when the children thanked God for all the different ways they look and things that make them unique.
Finally they used a mirror to observe their faces then started painting!
