Project: Collage Portraits

Caregivers and children will work together to create mixed media portraits. Families will first explore shapes and elements of portraiture (creating an image of a person, often a face). Next, families will create a portrait of their own by arranging and layering paper. At the end of the session, families can share their portraits with each other!

This free virtual class encourages children to explore different art mediums through sensory experiences, music, and movement activities. Children build motor skills and self-regulated independence and social skills while connecting with siblings and caregivers.
