Students started the year by discovering themselves through art through creating the cover of a sketchbook. The students created a drawing of themselves through the use of a symbolic self-portrait. They will use the space of the cover to create a drawing of all the things they love in the effort to describe who they are as a person. This drawing will be used as the cover of their sketchbooks in which all note, sketches, writings and free draws will be stored throughout the entire year. By the end of the school year, the students will be able to take this sketchbook home to use as reference the following year in 4th grade.
