Kathy from Art Projects for Kids shares a project that she is considering as an introductory art piece this school year. It is a self portrait using very simple lines-looks easy, but sounds like it may be challenging to get it right!! I think it is a great way to learn names and start the students thinking creatively. This is definitely something that could be used in a regular classroom as well (she is an art teacher). These would look great on the classroom walls!!
