A selfportrait is a representation of an artist, drawn, painted, photographed, or sculpted by that artist.

Artists have been drawing or painting portraits of themselves for many years. The true task of making a portrait is creating a likeness of yourself and sharing something you would like the viewer to know about you. Kids will learn about famous artists and talk about what these artists say about themselves: Rembrandt, Chardin, Botticelli, Van Gogh, Durer, Gauguin…
