We all love to tell stories! After looking at and discussing a series of famous portrait paintings and self-portraits by artists, students will create their own artwork “selfie” featuring images of things that represent themselves using charcoal, crayons, pastels and paint. Artists for inspiration will include Andy Warhol’s Pop Art series, Edvard Munch’s The Scream, Frida Kahlo’s Self Portraits, and historical photos that could be considered the first “selfies”. Join us for a fun day of art history, imagination and art!

Students need to bring the following suppliesCrayons, pastels and drawing paper will be supplied by Folklore Village. Students are encouraged to bring any other art materials you would like to use for your self-portrait.
