THE PICTURE OF THE MONTH
 
April 2015
Self portrait
Sign up here for the
photo of the month
     Have a go. Try drawing your own face, with all of its features, and that look that best represents you. Go on! Give it a try! But... it's not enough if it just looks a   b i t   like you. It needs to   r e a l l y   be you! Difficult? Yes, indeed! Not at all easy. In the photo, one of our little girls is showing us her self portrait in a mural at school. That's how she sees herself. "Hey. Is that you? You look so pretty!"

       To do a good self portrait two things are necessary; you need to (1) know how to draw well and (2) have a good mirror. If either of those factors is missing, you'll mess it up. The result of your drawing will be a funny caricature.

     Sometimes children see themselves a bit like that, the way they paint themselves – just a sort of rag-doll, grotesque figure. We need to help them improve their self image. To see what they're really like, they need other, more mature and objective eyes, as a mirror. They need to learn to value the admirable traits of that little person looking back at them in the mirror. They need to learn to appreciate the miracle of their own existence and their unique features. They need a healthy appreciation of their own worth, neither over- nor underestimating their importance.

     Help us be good portrait artists and good mirrors for the children. They need to get beyond a funny but grotesque caricature to a constructive realism.
