Falling into Places! ( with 3rd Grade )

Well this was one of those projects that would probably be better with an older group. There were a lot of steps...but I guess if you're willing to let it go and see what happens, this is a good project. Lots of trial and error!

First, we traced our hands and feet.  Then we drew a smaller oval for our heads...talked about correct proportion and self-portraits.

Then we discussed foreshortening briefly, and drew our arms and legs.

Finally, we painted using tempera paint....and added details with oil pastels. We cut out our drawings and placed them onto a stronger piece of paper with an 'atmosphere' that we were 'falling into'.
