Fifth Grade Mixed Media Self-Portaits
The Fifth Grader's worked on the figure, specifically portraiture for the entire ten weeks I was student teaching. As a capstone this to this project (The Giving Quilt Project) as well as their Portrait unit, we worked on self portraits combing tempera paint and attached fabric. It took about 5 (45 min.) class periods to complete from start to finish. I mounted the portraits the day we hung the show at the assisted living facility-nothing like cutting it close!
