This blog is a working record of my experience as an elementary art teacher. My successes, not-quite-successes, ideas, inspiration, projects, challenges and general art classroom "stuff" can be found here, along with some tidbits about life outside the classroom once in a while.
As one of the first projects for Kindergarten, each student drew a portrait of each other student in class on a 2"x2" square. I collected each of those portraits, in this case of Abigail, and made a collection of everyone's portrait of her. This gave me a good idea of where we were starting out (ability-wise), and gave us a chance to talk about facial features and differences in eye shapes, skin color, hair lengths and textures, etc. It also makes a great keepsake! I will be displaying them in the end-of-year art show along side their later-in-the-year self-portraits.
