The talented Cathe of Just Something I Made is here to share a fabulous craft that is sure to become a keepsake!
It’s so exciting to be a part of the Skip to my Lou Craft Camp as there are few things more wonderful than children creating art!
When my kids were much younger, they painted their own self portraits as gifts to their grandpa. These portraits are very simple to create and make incredibly precious mementos.
On inexpensive 9″ x 12″ craft store craft canvas boards draw basic pencil lines for the head and bust area of each portrait to help keep the artwork consistent in layout, leaving an area at the bottom for each child’s name. Allow each child to use acrylic paint to create their own self portrait including their name in the area at the bottom.
