Please Don't Eat the Artwork

Daydreamin’ Doodle Portraits

Leave a comment

5th graders created these cutie-pie portraits. I took their picture in a “daydreaming” pose. They brainstormed ideas of things that they are interested in and created symbols to represent those things. (Side note – this project was really exciting for me to teach because my thesis was all about personal symbolism and visual metaphors in artwork.)

Teacher Sample 🙂 

 

Students cut and glued their portrait to white cardstock paper and used markers, crayons, colored pencils, twistables, and any other dry medium to create visual interest, contrast, and personal symbolism. Students also had the option of creating abstract patterns instead of symbols so there are a few of those as well.

 

This project was a bit on the easy side for 5th grade so if I do it again, I may try and make it more challenging. However they did turn out really cute and it was cool to hear some great conversations about the things that they are interested in!
