Kids Intuitive Self-Portraits #1
What a great session we all had together in Kids Intuitive Art Class today!
Today we worked on Intuitive Self Portraits. We started with a meditation to identify what we love most in our lives; from loving our own bodies to loving our families, our favourite places and nature’s flora and fauna. Abbi loved ‘All nature’, Maya loved ‘Mountains’ and Byron loved ‘Donuts!’
Next, we imagined ourselves as who we want to be when we grow up, which included awesome responses such as 'A Teacher surrounded by annoying kids' ... 'A Dentist with 11 kids of her own' ... and 'An Art Teacher!'
We then used this content to inspire our Intuitive Self Portraits, by looking in the mirror at our key features and imagining our faces and bodies surrounded with drawings of our favourite intuitive insights.
The children took such time and care (and humour!) creating their pieces that we’ve decided to continue working on this lesson next week as well.
The final image is my demo. Haven't the children all done an amazing job so far?! I just love creating alongside the kids as we chat - it's a really beautiful and informal way to teach, share and companion alongside them throughout their process. I learn so much from them!
This is truly, the best job in the world to be doing this work with kids!
All My Love,
