I recently discovered hannahsartclub.wordpress.com. It is an inspiring blog about creative  projects for kindergarten and beyond, run by Hannah. She is  a talented  former art gallery and museum curator from the UK who currently works as an art teacher in Vienna, Austria. Hannah’s students are preschool children aged between three and six.

On her blog, Hannah wrote: “I am always amazed and inspired by the children’s creations and I feel that they deserve to be seen by as many people as possible.”

I agree with Hannah, that is why today I’m sharing her  half self-portraits project. You can read about the original idea behind this project here.

There is something so powerful and touching about these half self-portraits. I see each one as an invitation to re-enter that fantastic universe that we used to be part of when we were little.

I found this definition of  half  by the free dictionary : “One of two equal parts that together constitute a whole.”

What a perfect definition for these half self-portraits! The left side is reality while the right one represents imagination and creativity. Don’t you think that reality and imagination should form a whole? I believe that reality alone doesn’t mean much without the power of imagination and human creativity.

Now imagine a large mural with hundreds of these half self-portraits by children from all over the world. I also see a beautiful book featuring the artworks. Maybe Hannah should start a half self-portrait movement with art teachers from different countries to celebrate creativity. I would be happy to promote the movement from this blog 🙂
