4th Grade’s first art project

Mr. Geddes and Ms. Nanwani asked me to come to their classrooms to help the students get started on self-portraits — in text and images — intended to help the students get to know one another (and themselves) better at the start of the year.  After tracing one another’s head and neck, students began writing around their own silhouettes whatever personal, descriptive thoughts came to mind.  Then they created — by drawing, painting, and/or collaging — images both within & outside of their ‘heads’ so as to describe both their private & public thoughts, ideas, and likes.
