Behind My Mask (With Fold)
Inspired by Behind My Mask: A Super Kid Self-Portrait by Cassi Stephens
Lesson for grades K-1*
*requires some adult assistance
Watch the video for the lesson and instructions!
What did people do to record what they looked like before photography? Students will learn some history about Portraits and Self-Portraits. Then students will draw their own self-portrait with a twist! At first it looks like you are wearing a mask, and then you can open the paper and see what is behind the mask. Grades K-1: This project requires some adult assistance for the folding. If you prefer, there is a No Fold project alternative to draw a basic self-portrait with no assistance needed.
Key Words: Portrait, Self-Portrait
