Petunia's Portraits

Mount Lebanon School is a Responsive Classroom school.  As part of Responsive Classroom, we spend a great deal of time getting to know one another.  This project is being used as our "meet and greet." Students learned about making a self-portrait with Ms. Allen modeling using the interactive white board (see last picture).  We started out with a large piece of watercolor paper, sketched in an oval, split our faces in half with a dotted line, etc... Then we traced over certain lines and erased others.  After that, we added watercolor to enhance our details. In addition to the art, students will write about themselves and publish their writing for a display in the hall.
The original art lesson for this project came from the website Deep Space Sparkle.
