This week all Currier students have been working on drawing "head-to-toe" self portraits. Kids were asked to picture themselves holding something important to them. They colored their portraits with markers, crayons, and colored pencils, and then carefully cut them out. I collected their little figures and amassed them on a sheet of white craft paper and posted our very first whole-school portrait project on the big board near the front door at Currier today. I tried to take a photo, but the picture doesn't do it justice...this is really a special piece of art. It's like a Where's Waldo of joyful innocence.
I would like to thank Natalie at http://elementaryartfun.blogspot.com/ for sharing this wonderful idea. Thanks, Natalie! Thanks, thanks, thanks! This was so much fun.
Oh and did I mention...our school theme this year is: "High levels of learning for ALL students." (each and every wonderful one).
