Montessori students in grades 1-3 created these dynamic self-portraits. We began by drawing a realistic and proportional self-portrait. Once it was complete, we added some details to turn ourselves into superheroes- things like capes, masks, emblems, etc. Students then colored these with colored pencils and were encouraged to use bright and bold colors to mimic superheroes from comic books. We then created an abstract cityscape with oil pastels and stencils of skylines the students created. The final step was adding a moon and night sky. This was a cute twist on the self-portrait that really brought out each students personality and style.
