Behind My Mask

Inspired by Behind My Mask: A Super Kid Self-Portrait by Cassi Stephens

Teacher Notes

Project Description:

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
