Here are just a few of the self-portraits made in art class the first couple weeks of school. From left to right: Greer (CH), Lily (CH), Lou (LE), Abby (LE), Nolan (UE), and Adrian (LE). More to come!
I’ve begun hanging the originals in the hall to the left of the toddler room, so next time you’re at school be sure to check them out! I’m hoping to display them all soon. Each one really reflects the student’s unique and special personality. It’s been a really fun project.
Hello, Quest Families! The first few weeks have been wonderful at Quest, and I’m extremely excited to be leading such great group in art this year. I’ve been getting to know the students by beginning the year making self-portraits with the entire school!
Each group looked at how artists like Frida Kahlo and Vincent van Gogh represented themselves in their work, however the goal was not to create a self-portrait in their particular style. We discussed proportions of the face and students studied themselves in the mirror while working, but I also encouraged them to take creative liberties with their identities. The results are fun, creative, varied, and reflect a talented group. I’ll post a few images as they finish up this week, but be sure to check them out in person in the halls at Quest. I’ll let you know when I finish the display. For now, here’s a photo of some of the Upper Elementary students at work. -Anne
