This is a bad picture but they turned out really cute!
We drew our portrait on black construction paper and then I traced them with glue (it was too hard for the students to get the right amount of glue). They dried over night. The next day we used chalk to color in the face first and then we did the hair and shirt with the background last. We chose two colors to mix for the background. When they were finished we laminated them to get that shiny look. They were hung in the hall for our First Grade Program.
