As an extension from the discussion they had about the meaning of ‘diversity’, the K2 children were invited to create their self-portraits using various drawing and colouring materials. Each child was given the opportunity to illustrate themselves creatively.
As part of this art experience, they were provided with coloured pencils and crayons that represent human skin colours for them to understand that there are differences in skin colour among individuals from various countries, or even people from the same race. Through this, they gained a deeper understanding that human skin colour could range from the darkest brown to the lightest hues.
Children’s self-portraits were then displayed outside the classroom to raise awareness on how each individual in K2 class is unique and special. Lovely drawings, indeed!
