Colorful Abstract Art Self Portraits

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)
