Start a school birthday tradition! Use Crayola® Washable Window Markers or Crayola Window Crayons to draw self-portraits and birthday announcements on classroom windows.
Explore portrait painting styles of several different artists. The paintings of El Greco often include long, tall figures with faces longer and thinner than most people have. Rubens made many pictures of his children using chalk on brown paper. Look at his sketches for some ideas on how to capture your own face in a drawing. Rembrandt liked to look in the mirror and draw himself making faces with wild expressions. Think of an expression you could portray on your Birthday Baroque self-portrait.
Announce your birthday by drawing a self-portrait on the inside of a classroom window using Crayola® Washable Window Markers or Crayola Window Crayons. Create the design in your own style or try one of the portrait-painting techniques you studied. Draw outlines using the tip of the marker. Fill in large areas using the side of the marker tip.
Add a written announcement to your Birthday Baroque. Try your hand at reverse writing. Because the message will be read from the outside, write in large, backward block lettering on the inside of the window. Check out your Birthday Baroque announcement when you go outside!
