We could do this with out Frida Kahlo self-portraits--make them "selfies"! Fun, contemporary back-to-school lesson! Have your students draw "selfies" and describe their summer via text message prompts. Makes for a great bulletin board display!

CHILDREN'S SELF-PORTRAIT FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD. This exhibition was part of Nuit Blanche 2011. Children from all over the world were asked to draw a self portrait. I just love how each child captures him/herself. I would love to learn more and see more drawings created by these young artists living in various countries. Do some of the details in the drawings reflect the culture and environment in which they live?
