Where in the World Art You from?
Kirker, Sara Schmickle
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v108 n4 p44-45 Dec 2008
In this article, the author describes an activity that integrates world maps into self-portraits. Students received maps and used the beautiful geographic linear designs as a basis for their self-portrait. They began by drawing the shape of their head. Some students elected to add details to their self-portrait and to the background that corresponded to their former state or country. These self-portraits have helped the students understand that their past is a part of them. (Contains 1 online resource.)
