Winter Self-Portraits

4th and 5th grade students created self-portraits using pencil, mirrors, and 11"x17" white paper. They drew a hat and sweater to wear, colored themselves with oil pastel, and cut out their self-portrait. They glued it onto a blue sheet of paper and added snow flakes around themselves. I really like that this lesson teaches drawing skills and is a great holiday lesson without touching upon any holiday in particular.
