Cowboy/Girls Self-Portraits (1st Grade)

Here are some cowboy and cowgirl self-portraits created by 1st grade.  Students learned to define the vocabulary term "Self-Portrait" and also learned about facial proportions and collage (the art of gluing paper onto artwork).  We also talked about deserts and what a background and horizon line is.  When students finished coloring their pictures they glued pre-cut triangles as little bandanas to their drawings.  The portraits turned out beautifully!  Good job 1st grade!!
