6th grade

Sixth grade visual arts students have been learning about shading, value, and proportion as they complete self-portrait drawings. These drawings will form the centerpiece of a self-portrait box composition. The finished composition will include a collage of many different personal symbols along with the self-portrait drawing. We will study the work of Joseph Cornell as we begin the collage portion of this assignment.
Students should begin to gather and bring in images and small objects to include in their collages.
