All About Me

“Every job is a self-portrait of the person who did it. Autograph your work with excellence.” -Jessica Guidobono

There is definitely a healing process that goes on when you create something about yourself. When I was young, I loved to draw “me” with my friends and family members. Later in high school, I found that my favourite art projects were always the ones where I got to express aspects of my personality.

So every year, I ask my students to create a self-portrait. It’s not just a great way for me to know my students better, but a tool to help children build their self-image, self-esteem and find joy in expressing themselves. After all, art is about self-expression!
