faceyourmanga to exaggerate our physical features and of course had to blow them up to larger than life size!
We used a grid to help us enlarge our avatars and keep the correct proportion. We then talked baout what we want to exaggerate about ourselves. Often we focus on the things that we do not like rather than the things that are good about ourselves. I have then make a list of the things they love about themselves and things about them that they want to exaggerate. These are written in the background of their portraits.
I absolutely love how these turned out! They did a fantastic job enlarging something that started so small to something so big! They got a kick out of seeing our 3 and 4 year olds seeing these large portraits out in the hallway. For some reason they were mesmerized by these portraits!

A few months ago, we found out that St. Leo's will be closing at the end of this school year. It is a heartbreaking development and I will miss all of my students dearly but we still have many months to go so we should all look forward to making this the best school year ever! Drama club is in full swing and art club is learning stop motion animation this month! Our three short films will premiere at our Variety Show in May and Drama club will be performing two songs from Oliver Twist to open and close this end of the year extravaganza!
With in this post are some snap shots taking from these past months but I'll be back with some more details project posts soon!
