Third Grade Watercolor Self-Portraits: While observing themselves in mirrors, the third graders drew their own self-portraits of themselves. Then they added watercolor and ink to their drawings. The self-portraits were included on a 8' x 8' panel called Teach US which I designed and which was part of an exhibition called The Labyrinth Wall that was exhibited at Exit Art, a professional non-profit art gallery in Manhattan. The students took a field trip to the gallery to see The Labyrinth Wall and their own artwork hung up in the exhibition.
