This week we created self-portraits -- with personality! The idea was to add a surprise element to the artwork, something that would get the kids excited about who they are or what they like to do.
Kinders and 1st graders like to play! So, they portrayed themselves at play, using twine to indicate either swinging or jumping rope. Most of them chose the swing, for a fun 3-D effect.
Our 2nd graders created full body drawings of themselves, which they cut out and placed on a collage background of their choice.
Some chose lots of sparkle and color!
