Picture This: Art Experiences: Celebrate Me! Self Portraits

Art Experiences:

Celebrate Me!   Self Portraits  (Ages 3-10)

“We’ll share the book “I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More” then create our own colorful self-portraits!”

Read: I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More! by Karen Beaumont

 Action Rhyme:  I Paint My Fingers
I paint my fingers
I paint my toes
I paint my elbows
I paint my nose
I paint my body all over the place
Then I paint a smile across my face!

Read: Elephants Can Paint Too by Katya Arnold (599.67 ARN)

Action Rhyme:  As I Was Going out one Day

As I was going out one day (step high, arms pumping)
My head fell off and rolled away (point to head, roll arms over one another)
But when I saw that it was gone, (shade eyes)
I picked it up and put it on (mime this)
And when I went into the street (step high, arms pumping)
A fellow cried, “Look at your feet!” (point to feet)
I looked at them and sadly said, (shade eyes)
 I’ve left them both asleep in bed!” (shake head sadly)

Make full-size self portraits (materials: craft paper (or bulletin board paper) pre-cut in 3 ½, 4,and 5 foot lengths, markers, scissors, gluesticks, pompoms, feathers, scrap paper, etc.)
