M.Y.’s Self-Portrait Interview:
What made you decide to draw a self-portrait of yourself?
M.Y.: I was looking at the mirror and I wanted to draw my whole face. Ms. Babalis got me all of the materials. We set up a table to work on.
Talk to me about your experience making a self-portrait.
M.Y.: It was a good experience, because I like drawing. First I used pencil to make a plan on white paper. Then I used pencil on black paper. I used a hot glue gun with Ms. Babalis to add glue to my picture. Then I used chalk pastel and special Crayola crayons. Maddy went to get the crayons from the table. They are Crayola Metallic crayons. When my picture was done I put it in a frame on my cubby. I was happy, because I took my time and it looked pretty!
This version of the self-portrait was inspired by a
Grade 1 teacher in our school, Mrs. Nadine Dempsey.
