1st graders painted paper for use in their self portrait collages.  Each student painted a large sheet, which was then cut into quarters and shared with other classes.  We used the backs of our paintbrushes to draw into the paint and create texture for our hair.  When collaging, we thought about the shapes that make up our body parts.  Our features and smaller details are a mixture of collage and drawing.  I was impressed by the personality I can see shining through in each self portrait!
