You look like a monkey (or Rembrandt)…

Next step, the Archibald Prize!

In the footsteps of Dutch painter Rembrandt, we’re heading for the world of High Art (note capital H & A) this week.

Sit the (clothed) kiddies down in front of a mirror and get them to draw what they see, and create their first self-portrait. I’ve made it super easy with my Self-Portrait template, which already has the skull drawn and guides for where the eyes and mouth might go. Kids can add all the fun bits – eyes, hair, mouths and tongues. If you’re having an uber-parent day, you can go crazy with glue and wool for hair (or spiral pasta for curly-haired offspring).

Or leave the kids to it, sneak off for a sit-down, and see what they can come up to all by themselves…
