OMG! This is the most adorable lesson EVER! And the students LOVED it! It's also a great lesson to get some recycling in.
I introduced the lesson and talked about texture, collage, form, emotion, and relief sculptures.
First students painted the background of their cardboard. Next students picked through the recycling boxes (each table had one with buttons, bottle caps, string, toothpicks) and glued items down to create a face.
After everything dried I passed out oil pastels and students added details to their faces.
Let me warn you...they are way cute...you might overdoes on the cuteness...just sayin'.
