The Children of Ephesus

First Graders
Actually, this posting is not about ALL the children at my school---just the first grade.  The first grade team, in preparation for open house tonight, asked the kids to create their own realistic likenesses using a collage-type of format. Parents coming in then had to try to match their child's name with the piece of art.  I loved how the children perceived themselves, the details, the colors, the individual touches!

Can you believe the bead work? 

The bleached hair styling!

He looks ready for Wall Street.

The Mohawk!

The bangs!

Love the earrings and hair!
This tradition has continued for several years. Thanks, Gretchen!  We now are making plans for staff to make their own self portraits and have the students guess!  I can't wait!

  1. I love the idea of the staff making their own self portraits. You should keep them posted in the atrium for visitors.
