Every month, starting in theĀ Buttercups class, students use mirrors and various mediums to create self-portraits.

Self-portraits show the development of a child's fine motor, observation and focusing skills and also gives the children insight into the concept of self.

Self-portraits also test our adult observation skills because the telling elements are often in the details. Teachers will question the students on these details, and the children's statements are recorded along with the portraits.

At the end of the year the children will compare and see how far they have come with their skills and growth.
