The girls have explored different ways to create faces. They have created three different self-portraits using different materials. Each time the girls have used the mirror to keep a close watch on their face as they illustrated. They composed one portrait with oil pastel crayons, choosing very carefully the color of their skin, hair, and eyes. The second self-portrait consisted of using only black ink as they dictated what they saw in the mirror and what they were drawing. Then, the final piece was a mosaic, which required a lot of patience and perseverance.
Here's a sampling of their precious faces!
