My eighth grade students will be graduating soon so in honor of this big transition in their lives I have dedicated this lesson to them. I took photographs of them in an "action" pose then printed the image for use in this project. I wanted the students to notice in particular the movement and rhythm of the piece.
To begin the lesson the students cut out their photograph then traced it several times onto colored paper of their choice. By the way the scrap box had some awesome scrap paper in it. The images were arranged on a variety of creative backgrounds as you will see.
