Who Is That-In the Looking Glass?

Who is that-in the Looking Glass?

Create an Expressionistic Self-Portrait using a fun craft project.  First trace the shape of a hand held looking glass mirror onto
a piece of lightweight bristol or cardboard.  Cover it with tin foil. and create hair, a hat, ribbons or bows-whatever you like around the "face".  Create designs on the handle of your looking glass.  Now look into the looking glass at your distorted image.  Draw the distorted self-portrait and the looking glass shape around it.  Create a bulletin board of the distorted drawings.
