This lesson is about transformation. The students explore the potential of objects and see them transform into a face, an expression or an emotion. For this project we incorporated "found" objects to construct the face and to add details to the body. Can you see the different expressions in each character's face?
Inspiration came from the amazing art of Nan Fleming seen below.

These were made a couple of years ago by K-1 students. It turned out to be one of my favorite lessons. I am sharing it now as it applies to my previous post and may give you some more ideas for a collage project and the use of texture plates.
