It is nearly impossible not to fall in love with these colorful self portraits! This collage lesson gave students important practice with cutting and gluing as they used their imagination to construct a colorful (somewhat proportionate) facial composition. Using bright colors allowed students to use their imagination and pushed them to think more abstractly/ outside the box. This project was also a continuation of our Abstract Art Unit!
We Learned to….
- Use shapes and color to create art from imagination
- Use 2D & 3D Techniques
- Use scissors and glue to develop motor skills in a safe & responsible manner
- Understand expression
- Use art vocabulary to discuss art work
- Show how facial expressions can communicate emotions (visually)
