Just Be Your Selfie invites children to be both artist and subject as they explore their uniqueness by creating a self-portrait. We are excited to offer this program as a School Incursion for students in Junior and Senior Primary School.

How do I see myself?

What makes me unique?

Mirrors encourage children to study their faces and re-create themselves on paper, blending the image they see in the mirror with the person they experience themselves to be. Their portraits become eloquent statements of self.

Hosted by a Gallery educator, this is a free curriculum-aligned visual arts program, with materials provided. We encourage teachers to participate in the workshop however the teacher is responsible for the duty of care and behaviour management of the class and must be present for the duration of the lesson. Session duration varies – please contact us for details.

This program is available to schools within Ipswich LGA. If your school is located outside of this limit, please contact us to discuss.
