Half Self Portraits #2 (February 2013)

I have been looking forward to having another go at this self portrait project ever since I tried it for the first time, two years ago. You can read more about the process in my previous post – Half Self Portraits (February 2011) – which means that here I can just let the children’s art works speak for themselves…

    So glad I stumbled on your blog! Looking for ways to actually teach art to my homeschooled Kindergartener, rather than just paint and color. These pics are priceless, btw!

    Would you allow me to share this wonderful project on http://www.artisaway.com ?
    Would it be OK if i use some of the photos?
    Thanks a lot. Your blog is wonderful.
