Rainbow Self-Portraits

Montessori students in grades 1 through 3 created these vibrant and colorful self-portraits. We began by drawing a realistic portrait and coloring them with colored pencils. Students learned about Mondrian and the primary colors and created some Mondrian inspired umbrellas. To create the rainbow rain storm, students first learned the order of the color wheel. We then put drops of watercolor paint on the paper and blew them through a straw. This was a super fun lesson teaching portraiture and the many aspects of color!
