self portrait made by a 4 year old child at washwood heath nursery school birmingham…..Like this!

This beautifully modelled ‘happy’ face was made by a young child at Washwood Heath Nursery School in Birmingham. I was particularly taken by the detail: Cheeks, moustache, beard and eye lashes were all carefully added or drawn into the clay slab.

The children and staff are exploring notions of the self and we chose to use clay to explore facial expressions and associated emotions.clay self portrait made by nursery school aged child at washwood heath nursery school in birmingham
