Since I'm with my nieces and nephew, I am now doing weekly art projects with them. We got this idea from the wonderful Hannah's Art Club which has some amazing art projects to do with children. I found creating these 1/2 portrait was fun and easy, yet challenging enough for even an adult like myself. The idea is to take 1/2 a photo of yourself and then draw the other half. As you can see from the results below, it was a lot of fun for a 3 year old and all the way up to my old age. Have you ever tried this? Would you if you haven't?
