Funny Faces with Feelings

Inspired by Picasso portraits and Matisse patterns students used one of several oval head shaped patterns to trace and cut their base on one of 3 pre-select paper colors. The head shape was glued to a background "pillow". Review of the parts of the face and how feelings are expressed in facial features. Making choices from a huge variety of abstract shapes students experimented with a variety of faces and then selected one to glue and attach. Using scissors, glue and  solid, printed and painted paper scraps (collage)  the artists completed their Face with Feelings by adding ears, hair, eyebrows...and many other details. The result dozens of unique, colorful and emotion filled faces!
