Art – Awkward School Pictures

Standard

Remember those awkward school photos in the 80’s?

Well, obviously my 8th/9th graders don’t, and as we were making these, a friend of mine gave me the idea to turn this surrealism lesson into the laser beam pictures, and thus, “Awkward School Pictures” was born.  The kids had a great time finding their animal head and adding the Zen tangle-styled clothing, and they used markers and colored pencils.  The background laser beams were done with oil pastels watercolor.  Fun stuff!
