end of year portraits - grade 6
Every year for graduation, the grade sixes do self portraits. I think typically they do silhouettes (which I do love.) Since I got to help organize grad for the first time this year, I decided on a "POP" theme, and helped the kids to make pop art style self portraits!
I took a picture of the students, which they traced onto acetate paper. They projected them onto a wall, and traced their portrait onto construction paper using Sharpie. Then, they colored it in using pastels. When they were finished, they traced different tracers to make the letters of their names, which they again colored in using pastels. I laminated their work before we mounted them in the gym. I LOVE how they turned out!
Hope everyone's summer is going well! I still have many more updates backlogged on my camera. Will keep posting when I find the time!
