For the 3rd grade art class assignment “We Are Kelly Kids,” students sought to bring out the best in each other through teamwork. They worked in small groups and shared supplies, as well as thoughts and ideas, on their projects. Informal group critiques by and for the students were an ongoing part of the creative process, providing students opportunities to exercise their voices and offer constructive criticism with the aim of problem-solving and inspiring their classmates.
The elements of art students focused on were color, line and shape. They were challenged with the task of creating a 3-D portrait using scrap materials from a 2-D contour line drawing they drew themselves.
