What do you know about the psychological development or implications
(aka. self esteem development) of having children paint self portraits?
I am writing a proposal for an arts residency to involve 3-5th graders in
crataive writing about themselves and then transfer their writing into
the visual image through symbolic (rather than representational) self
portraits. I'd appreciate any insight you might have into the
psychological benefitrs for the chidlren through this experience.
