Super 5th Graders December 3, 2012

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 9:31 pm

5th graders just created their alter-egos.  For this self portrait assignment, students began with a survey about themselves; questions relating to their favorite colors, desired superpower, favorite animal, etc.  Next, students learned about basic human proportions, enabling them to draw their characters more accurately.  We stick to the 7 head rule, which illustrates that a human is 7 heads tall, and landmarks include the waist/elbows at 3 heads down, hands at 4 heads down, and knees at 5 heads down.

Here are some of our local heroes:
