First graders reviewed lines and patterns as they created their own Romero Britto inspired profiles. This is always a favorite project of mine to teach.
I took every first grader's photo and then enlarged them with the use of my projector. Students used oil pastels to add patterns inside their profiles, and then used watery tempera to paint a watercolor resist on top.
I am a K - 5th grade art teacher at Wilson Creek Elementary and Anna McDonald School in Manhattan, IL. I am also a mother of two little girls (who share my love of art)!
