In this article, the author describes how his first-grade students made their own compositions based on James Rosenquist's collage series in which long shards of faces were painted over a background that appeared to be abstract. The background was made up of enlarged details of things such as flowers, leaves, fire, and water. The students' finished works looked mysterious but still very emotional because of the distinct parts of the human face that were universal in nature, yet unique to each child.
