I think that this could be one of my favorite projects of all time, the students really love getting involved, working on plastering each other faces and then finally getting to paint them. Here are some of the faces from 2nd semester.

We have been talking about careers that one can have in art and Illustration is a big one. We talked about how to come up with ideas and what illustrators do. One thing of course is illustrating books. I choose a book that all 4th graders can relate to. THe students had to do 2 practice drawings and titles for their book before I let them have the Goosebumps cover paper, once they had that they needed to illustrate their cover the best they could. After that we displayed them on the lockers for all to see.
These are from the 6th graders. We talked about what they needed do to create a symmetrical drawing. The students created these on a 6x6 piece of paper, they drew them out with a pencil and then they traced with sharpie markers. Once they were traced with sharpie they turned them over and retraced them so that they have the same design on both sides. One side is left black and white while the other is colored. We hole punched the corners and hung them up in the 6th grade hall.
I have a mission to make sure that my 5th graders understand perspective so this is our 3rd or 4th project on this subject matter. I think they are getting a hold of it. Found this project on Pintrest a while ago and it turned out pretty well. This was an idea I got from Once upon an artroom which is a great site as well.
