Back in September, our students created self-portraits using vibrant watercolors and discussed the concept of abstract paintings. As the year moved forward, we revisited self-portraits in other ways. Recently, we stirred up more conversation about Picasso and his different periods of art while discussing spatial awareness in math - specifically, that we use different shapes to design, make, and represent things. We decided to look at mosaic art and created self-portraits using ripped pieces of paper.
Kindergarten students had a great deal of fun doing this activity, which was directly connected to our guiding question. Come by the kindergarten classrooms and take a look at their work!
