Cowboy/Cowgirl Self-Portraits (2nd Grade)

This is the last of the Cowboy & Cowgirl Self-Portraits.  I so love these little cowpoke artworks!  We began by talking about some artists that created self-portraits, Frida Kahlo & Vincent Van Gogh.  Then we talked about our vocabulary terms, self-portrait, background, foreground, geometric shapes, collage, and horizon line.  Students followed along as we drew ourselves and learned about facial proportions.  They colored, cut, and glued on the hats and bandanas.
