Third Grade Self-Portraits

 Third Graders recently finished their amazing self-portraits. They've been working incredibly hard on these since before the holiday break. We began by drawing, learning about how to make accurate proportions. Next we had a great time mixing paint to create skin tone colors. I showed students how to begin with orange or brown. From there, they were encouraged to experiment by creating a lighter tint or a darker shade to match their skin color. Students learned that every skin color is unique, just like they are! Just look at the range of beautiful skin colors they mixed!
