No Scissors Allowed
Bates, Janet
Arts & Activities, v152 n2 p22 Oct 2012
Once, in the author's continual quest for unique and varied art projects, she was inspired by a colorful Kleenex[R] box which was covered with faces in a variety of sizes, ages, shapes and colors. What a fun idea to have her class create their own portraits using only construction paper, glue and one's fingers. As she shared an examplar rip-art portrait she made, the author presented her students the challenge of creating a face. The students had to create it without the use of scissors or any writing instrument to draw outlines or shapes. During this lesson, student creativity bubbled to the surface, surpassing her expectations.
