I also save and display my students five years of self-portraits. I have
the fifth graders mount all five years worth on two sheets of colored paper
(24" x 36"). They write their name on the computer in different fonts and
cut these out to glue around the portraits. I encourage them to bring in
photos of themselves to glue around the portraits and many of them do this.
I hang every single finished display (about 125) in the fifth grade hallway
for the art show.
I just met the mom of one of my former students at the hair dresser. She
said she was in the process of having all five portraits framed to give to
her child (now grown up) as a gift.
