I'm a wife to my "Mr. Right". A momma of five. A maker of slow food and simple living. A collector of memories, a keeper of books, and a champion for books that make memories. An addict who likes my half-and-half with a splash of coffee. A fractured pot transformed by the One Who makes broken things beautiful. I heart homeschooling, brake for libraries, and am glad you're here with me on the journey! Be sure to subscribe to my daily digest via email or RSS feed.

Abstract Self-Portrait Art Tutorial-The Unlikely Homeschool

This year, I am attempting to incorporate a few more-extensive art projects into our days to help build persistence and patience along with creativity.  This simple spin on a self-portrait made for a perfect art project with which to start our year.  Although it took us two whole art sessions to complete, the easy collage-style provided a painless introduction to long-term art lessons.  

Be sure to head to Hip Homeschool Moms for the step-by-step directions to making your own abstract self.


  1. This is SO neat! I'm going to show it to my girls. Maybe they'll want to do it.

  2. So cute , my granddaughter who is 5 has just done her first collage she will love this!
