Sandra- this is a great site!
Allison- Last year I presented a "self-portraiture" lesson to my 8th graders
and introduced it with a video on Kahlo -followed by a very interactive
discussion about her imagery. The project focused on the "proportions" of
the self image which was done in oil pastel. To personalize, they were to
add photo's in a collage format around the self-portrait (likes, dislikes,
hobbies etc...). I also made them incorporate their name into the collage.
The results were wonderful! I recieved many complements from other teachers
and used these portraits as wall decor for the 8th grade dance. Many took
their's home after the dance. It was very cool!
