Grade 3 students have been exploring their identity through art. In Mr. Witrak’s art class, girls took an iPad selfie, and then created a pencil self-portrait based on that image. This project emphasized: understanding the proportions of the face, shading techniques, and making the eyes come alive. In the spring our girls will do a similar painting project in the cubist style.
The colorful self-portrait (done in Ms. Levy’s class) is a silhouette filled with images that delve into the artist’s identity. This art project will be complemented by student-created I Am poems later in the month.
