How to make a self-portrait
There are many different ways to make a self-portrait it doesn't
have to be a traditional drawing or painting of your face.

What will your self-portrait say about you?
Making a self-portrait is a great way to express and explore your
identity. It's not about what your parents, friends, teachers,
brothers or sisters think you should be. It's about who you think you

Ideas to get you started
Think of the things that make you what you are:
the clothes you wear and the way you look
the music you listen to and the music you make
the words you write and the images you create
what you've been through and how you feel now
where you live and where you belong
the things you love and the things you hate
your passions, politics and beliefs
your family and friends
the things that make you laugh and the things that make you cry
the places you like and the places you fear
the people you admire and the people you trust
the messages you write and the messages you receive

You might think that your bedroom, your clothes, your diary or even
some of your favourite objects, photographs or documents say more
about you than any mirror image could describe.

In your self-portrait you need to be the real you.
