The fourth graders are beginning to explore their own creative and artistic abilities. The current unit of study challenges them to reflect on their own identity and use images to convey that identity to their classmates. We looked at the child prodigy artist Alexandra Nechita and learned about her sources of inspiration. We then listed our sources of inspiration and students are currently brainstorming ideas and rendering "thumbnail" sketches in their sketchbooks. These sketches will be used as they assemble their Self-Idenity Collage piece. The art room will become "their studio" and they will work with mixed mediums to create this piece. Their "passions" are driving their imaginations and needless to say they are very excited to create these....stayed tuned!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
