The grade 6’s are starting a new project. It is a difficult project for me as the teacher but so beneficial for the children. In this self-portrait they have the freedom to use which ever mediums they enjoy or are comfortable with. Basically to show off the best of their abilities in their favorite mediums.
They start with a photo of themselves either a “selfie” or a photo taken by a friend using their iPad. The children are then encouraged to edit the colours and look of the photo. To crop it and rotate it if they so choose. They may not, however distort the photo with a bubble lens for instance.
Once they are happy with the new look of the photo they try to replicate it on paper. Again, the mediums they choose to do this are totally up to them.
