Today we drew our very FIRST self portraits
and experienced our FIRST soft Pastels...
Do you know how intimidating it is to try something for the first time?
Those soft, dusty, pigment-rich chalks are so... different!
Some of my children were intimidated by drawing themselves this way,
but WOW! How GREAT they did! And after they followed through
with this first, they were off!
It was good for me to sit down WITH my little bugs because I often get
them started on a project and then I do something else while they are busy.
I've been needing to sit down and learn and participate with them.
It was new for me too.
I used soft pastels once for a class waaaaaay back in my past
but never to draw a person.
This kinda made me want to sit down with the kiddos again!
