6th: Paper Self Portraits

What are self-portraits and why do artists create them?

6th graders are continuing to explore this question and ideas of self through the creation of symbolic self-portraits. Students must consider how symbols, shapes, and colors can give their artworks meaning and what it is they would like to say about themselves.

From preliminary sketches through the construction of their low-relief paper sculptures, students are encouraged to see the impact each creative decision has on their final works.
