3rd Grade Collage Self-Portraits

As you may remember from a previous post, the third graders had been learning about how to draw themselves from observation. After working so hard on developing those skills, the students got to solve the creative challenge of making a self-portrait out of paper. They made beautiful, detailed work. Each student chose their own style to construct their portrait - some cut exact pieces for every part of the face, some pieced together each part of the picture with lots of little scraps. Some chose realistic colors, some chose imaginary colors. So great!
Many pieces are still in the works. Will post more when they are all done!
