Wednesday Works - Hanoch Piven Relief Portraits - 5th grade

This is just one of the many new projects I've planned to try this school year.   Of the 5 for 5th grade - Hanoch Piven Relief Portraits is the one featured today.

If you're an art teacher like me, you have boxes and bags of "things" people thought you might be able to use.   Bags of spools, a box of wooden cones from thread, some small plastic lids from who knows what, washers and buttons and felt scraps, etc. 

I gave the students free-reign of the boxes.   With a medium sized piece of scrap mat board, they started planning out a portrait.

After all their items were arranged and glued into place, we painted them.   This year is also the first year to try out tempera cakes instead of the jars we've used in the past.   The first two classes have already decided they like these much better than the wet paints.

This one will be placed on the write-up pile and added to the curriculum lesson plan binder!

Did I also mention, we (I) wrote an email to Hanoch Piven and he sent an email back to us?    The kids were so excited!

Thank you Mr. Piven!
