Art class - self portraits with collage

We recently found ourselves with a free afternoon in which to make ourselves some self portraits. In the past we've made self portraits with a graphics program, which was super fun. So when I brought back the idea with old magazine collage, the kids jumped at the idea. Even Max, who didn't really have the slightest idea why we were cutting up perfectly good magazines.

So I started them with realistic looking portraits, trying to get them to match their hair and eye color and such. From there we let loose and made some really wacky ones, complete with fuzzy bunny slippers, yoda heads, and pignoses, just for good measure. Love it. What good is art if you aren't free to express yourself, right?
