5th Grade- self portraits!

This fall the fifth grade classes worked with their fantastic teacher, Mr. Fenton, to create some really powerful poems about themselves and where they are from. In the art room I had them start to look at themselves, and try to find the shapes that make them them! They isolated different features of faces and practiced drawing them over and over.  Once they had done that they looked in the mirror and isolated their own features and then put them all together to create some amazing portraits.  They made themselves holding the poems, but I cropped that part out as they are very personal.  They look pretty amazing!
