Lego Self Portraits

Mix pop culture into your art class with a Lego self portrait project. Younger students can customize a template, and older ones can draw one from scratch.

Make it a Lego week at your school and use the template below for kinder through 1st / 2nd grade project, and the tutorial for 1st / 2nd through 5th.

Younger students concentrate on personalizing their drawing to look like themselves (shirt or dress? long hair or short?). Older students make their drawing completely their own by drawing their Lego self portrait body and then adding other elements wherever they want. Hats and other accessories are always fun.

If you like this project, there are many more like it in my “Self Portrait Art Projects” ebook in my PDF Shop. Just click on the link or photo to learn more.
