In our inquiry Incredible Me: Seeing Details and Actions Grade 1 discussed several artworks and looked at how artists tell stories by recording important details. Students compared each others faces to notice the differences we all have, in the shape of our face and features and the things we wear. After learning some techniques to tear paper into purposeful shapes, students created these expressive self portraits using only paper and their hands. Some finishing details helped to tell our unique story to our viewers.
Our finished work! Grade 1completed their torn paper portraits by collaging in small details and embellishments.
