Part of Me, Part of You...

What a fun trade!!! Becker Middle School in Becker MN, made these great cards. Mrs. Hare from Art at Becker Middle School met with me a couple of weeks ago and we really wanted to do something fun, and fast as an exchange with our middle schools. We made ATC for one another with a half face on them. We were inspired by an artist named Ben Heine's (click here to see his work). We wanted to have our students interact with each others cards. This is what we came up with...

  • Cards were created and exchanged. (Mrs Hare always send her cards in the most fun packaging)
  • Students in my class used my computer and the software photobooth. They each estimated the correct perception with the art. Some kids were dead on... other... well I think this take a little practice:)
  • Then, the kids got to take home the cards from the exchange.
Students LOVED getting the art. Looking at how others attempted the same lesson. They were showing one another the cards and smiling from ear to ear doing it. It was fun for them to see what the students titled their art work. They loved seeing themselves in the pictures. We had a blast.

Thank you Becker Middle school. Go ahead and check out the images that my kiddo's took with your lovely art work!
