I am really digging these blind portrait drawings from my grade 6 students (11 years old). I’d love to give them a metre canvas with some paint and a thick brush! Using a mirror, students look at their reflections paying very close attention to the edges and details within their reflection. They slowly inch their way around the image, drawing what they see but they do not look at their papers. It was a warm-up activity (five minutes) for their self-portrait projects, which I’ll also post in the future when this first group has completed it.
