The 6th graders have discussed art and looked at some different reasons why people create art. A basic art definition is: Art is a way of creative expression. Our first unit focuses on how we can create to express who we are. Students sketched themselves as many different characters. Superheros, food, animals, toys, robots, monsters, aliens, machines, and ordinary objects were some of the interesting characters the students drew.
Students also drew a creative timeline of their life so far. Now students are making a comic story of an event from their life. Some students are drawing the original story, and others are exaggerating it and turning it into a tall tale. Here are some comic stories in progress.
