MS: Stereotype Bobbleheads

Students in the Fall Middle School elective class finished their semester of exploring their own identities and their communities by creating self-portrait bobbleheads. The bobbleheads were constructed with Model Magic, wire, and acrylic paint.

Each student’s task was to address a stereotype they face through the creation of their bobblehead. Each bobblehead was later combined with text and additional visuals to debunk this stereotype. This project got students talking about why stereotypes exist and how each member of a community can affect change, particularly through artmaking and visual literacy.
