Thumbprint Self Portrait

Welcome back to Don't Forget the Art! It has been a while...too long, in fact, since we have arted together. And I am super excited and ready to get back into the creative flow.


This week's project inspiration came from here. I thought this would be a fun and simple project to get us back into the swing of things and getting some art going in our homes and homeschools.




There are a few supplies you will need for this project. They are:

- ink or magic marker

- card stock or paper

- scanner or camera (phones will work)

- computer and printer

- typing paper

- sketch paper

- pencil

- pencil sharpener

- eraser

- painter's tape (washi or masking tape will work, too)

- Sharpie markers, ultra fine (or pencil, ink pens, colored pencils, etc)


The direct link for the video tutorial can be found here:


This project is going to be a fun way to get those creative juices flowing as well as providing a fun self-portrait - a little snippet into who you are and where you are in life right now. I hope you enjoy this project. Looking forward to an amazing school year filled with lots of amazing art. Happy arting, all!
