New Material Self Portraits

This week Mrs. Russell and I both used new materials we found to make self portraits!

A self portrait is an artwork you make that shows yourself!

Mrs. Russell reused cardboard cereal boxes and a brown paper bag for her self portrait! She drew the parts of her face on cardboard, cut it out with scissors, and glued all of the pieces together!

Look at Mrs. Russell’s self portrait!

I found pieces of tree bark on the ground during my walk one day and decided to collect it for a new art material! I used oil pastels to draw parts of my face on the different pieces of bark. Then I glued them together on a piece of paper in a mixed-up way (a little bit like cubism).

What new materials can you think of to use to create a self portrait? Try one at home and send me a picture!

    I did all my work on paper and but I didn’t have your email to send the pictures of my work so I was sending them to my teacher, Mrs.Hammoud.
